A great, bright pub to enjoy a drink and a meal at, for an admittedly higher price than I'm used to! But my mum came from the States so we had to go out of budget at least once.

We came here for lunch and both had steaks - super tasty, though the ribeye is much better than the picanha. The cafe de Paris butter that it came with was delicious, though my mum wasn't a huge fan. Thankfully it's...more

Great atmosphere and really chilled out design, waiting staff was friendly and helpful plus the free glass of wine with yelp check in is a great added benefit. We had the Sunday roast for two which was very tasty and also ecstatically pleasing served on a chopping board. Maybe the only down side was the price but it's still not too bad. :)more

Outside there is bench seating, which is quite pleasant on a summer evening. On the left as you enter there is a relaxed bar area where you can eat if the restaurant is full.

On the right is the main restaurant with a modern, clean aesthetic. Great,...more
