We wandered around the area on a nice Sunday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised to find this pub had a BEAUTIFUL back garden. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the food, but it looked heavenly.

We were so excited to try lunch here in the hopes that we would find another pub in the area with good food - unfortunately that wasn't the case.

We started off with padron peppers and calamari. The padron peppers were both soggy and burnt (not a great combo), totally unseasoned and did not seem at all fresh which was super disappointing as they are one of my favourite dishes. The calamari... more
