Don't mind the reviews from those who have based their opinion on a Sunday visit to have the lunch. That is a mad time to go when it gets so packed it's simply not comfortable. Go any other time (especially afternoons), and you will find the nicest pub serving great draught beers (Bitburger and craft ales) , well chosen winesand a good choice of quality bar food. The staff are friendly and efficient, the punters a good mix of chatters and the interior is lovely with wood, flowers and chandeliers. This place is a gem.


Had sunday lunch there today and food was average at best - veg was nice, roasters and yorkshire clearly been in oven for hours and beef rather stringy - onion gravy was tasty Great walk along the market to get there so overall experience was OK, but price of food not good value


This place is racist and won't serve foreigners. Way too expensive considering the staff is rude and the service is slow. There's no disabled toilet and way too crowded.

A fantastic range of beers and spirits, good service. To be honest though I wasn't that fussed by the Sunday lunch. It did the job, filled the hole, pretty good value for money, but nothing too spectacular taste wise by any means. Meat, carrots and parsnip was nice, potatoes were a bit salty for me. I felt it was value for money, so you'd do worse.
