The restaurant area is quite spacious and suitable to larger groups. Food was reasonably priced. The rigatoni I got was a bit salty but the other dishes were pretty good. They also have a good selection of beer.

I have passed on your comments to Chef and his team about the Rigatoni so we can better improve for next time. We hope to see you back for a future visit again soon! Warm Regards,

Was booked into the 1st floor (I believe more formal) but we decided to stay downstairs and spent around 2.5 hours there without being bothered by staff to move on, for our purposes (20+ year catch up) it was fantastic.

It's a pub so of course it is pub-like. That means crowded and noisy which is what one would expect. The upstairs dining area is less noisy - especially if you get a table near the windows. The serves are very generous so if you have a big appetite ..... go here!
