Music was a bit loud and dance like for a Sunday afternoon - the food was lovely and great service.

Fantastic Sunday roast with all the trimings! Could have done with more staff serving behind the bar - it was a busy Sunday lunch-time and the wait to be served to order food and drinks was a bit long.

Beer selection is outstanding, service was great, but we didn't love the food unfortunately. We ate upstairs in the bistro. Will definitely go back but probably for drinks only.
