Once the beautiful Victorian interiors of this old pub were restored to their original glory and the first floor dining room opened, along with outside terrace for dining, the locals must have breathed a sigh of delight before tucking into some seriously good gastropub grub. Business folk crowd in at lunchtimes, while friendlier couples and groups pack in evenings and weekends. There is something here to suit most palates and pockets. The menu changes daily - another sign that they're serious about food here - but we recently loved the fish chowder, and the aubergine, potato and spinach bhaji with yoghurt. The wine list is heaven.

Really nice pub which is quite comfortable both outside and inside. Enjoyed a few points initially outside and went back inside when the temperature dropped a bit. Affordable pints at 3.5 quid. Had the Roast Organic Beef for dinner which was very tasty, albeit a bit small for American stomachs. However, they charged a 4 quid service charge, not sure for what.more
Been here a number of times and the first few were excellent. Manchego spring rolls, charcuterie and the artichokes were favorites. Basically went through most of the tapas menu. Also the fresh tagliatelle was top notch. However the last few visits have seen a big drop off in the food quality. Not sure what changed but this is no longer on my radar as a top gastro pub. Still a nice place...more
Unique menu: pumpkin and Spanish lasagna, roasted chicken with barley were our choices. The food was very tasty besides being different. It was a bit noisy but it was happy crowd. The service was fine and the food was plentiful.more
This could be considered a local pub. I have tried dining and drinking there numerous times and every time I feel it could be better.
a year ago, it was completely free on Friday night, you can find a seat and get served quickly, but things have definitely changed in the past few months, I suspect it is something to do with the management - it is very packed nowadays

We walked here after Zoo Lates, and the cosy pub atmosphere really warmed us up after being in the rain for 3 hours.
We got there a bit later, and there was a younger crowd there, which was nice, b/c we got to see a couple making out while standing on a table, and they accidentally gave us a free glass of wine!
