I brought a friend here on a rainy day and had a very relaxing evening. The place is spacious and laid back with large sofas and wooden tables. Our server was attentive and kept checking on us.

We started with some herbal tea, then ordered dinner. I had a huge portobello mushroom burger with fries. It was so tall that it looked impossible to eat without dislocating my jaw! The buns were...more

The Elephant on the Hill has recently changed hands and things have got a lot better. This is a venue with a good choice of beer and a decent menu. It is half way between gastro-pub and normal pub food.

The staff are very keen to serve and will provide a drinks service. For the summer 2011 they are advertising a barbecue on the patio from "finish work on Friday, all weekend". I havent tried...more
