Buzzing pub offering table service in the restaurant section at the back. Staff are friendly and service is quick. The menu is modern and caters for everyone.

Only downside is that the seitan burger I ordered was a real letdown. It comes with sriracha sauce, Korean red pepper and ‘slaw’.

The burger was so dry it was almost inedible, the slaw is raw shredded white cabbage with no dressing whatsoever. I literally got a pea sized blob of sriracha in the bun and no Korean pepper!

I complained and was given some sort of burger sauce that was nowhere to be found on the menu so it wasn’t clear if it was vegan.

The chips were also a bit sad, seemed like they’d been fried too long or something - didn’t taste fresh at all.

To be fair, my burger was taken off the bill but it did make for an unsatisfying meal when I was out catching up with my mum for the evening!

The selection of beers here is good and the service was fine. Once you start paying over a tenner for a burger (chips extra!) it needs to be great. We had two different types of burger and both were just ok. They were both overdone - the patty was too thin. The fries were nice but they come in a small silver bucket - so you don't get very many of them for your extra money.

Our gin and tonic was served in a wine glass, this might seem like a small complaint, but when you pay ten pounds, it needs to be served properly as well as taste good.
Draft house used to be a reliable brand a couple of years ago, I would worry for its future now. Overall, poor value for money.


A well kept secret, with an enormous selection of craft beers and well presented food. Possibly being a little off the beaten track, The Draft house is mercifully hipster-free and not rammed to the rafters in the way, for instance, that the two Brewdogs are.


The moment we walked in a cheery hosted greeted us with a smile. We sat down and and the server sat down with us (a nice touch) and recommended a beer (which turned out to be fantastic). The beer battered onion rings were delicious though a little on the greasy side. My gf liked them tho!
