Food is simple English fare. Too tip is to always order "with" - as in with a sausage on the side.
Pork belly for starter is delicious. And you can't go wrong with the steak and kidney pie. Recommend getting chips and bubble and squeak with it!
1757! How's that for being around a long time? Came here just for the experience and had a great time, some nice beer and good food. Ask for the stewed cheese, it's like Welsh Rarebit, cheese over bread, and very filling!
This place was off a little side street. Not the normal place i would go to. Ambiance was great. Waiters very attentive and quick. I had the Cottage Pie, sausage and cauliflower with cheese.
