"By no stretch of the imagination is it a pub and we have seen people being discouraged from just having a drink. You’d never pop in for a pint and those pub of the year awards feel rather bogus. It’s a restaurant in a pub style atmosphere, and it’s a very good restaurant indeed. Food respects the locale and the seasons - a big bone filled with tongue and marrow; a tian of crab, fresh and textured with apple; a light goats cheese tart with walnuts; a beautiful golden steak pie with a bone marrow cork, which you pull out to allow the marrow to settle into the heart of it. Robust, forthright, great quality. Excellent wine list - really well thought through and some treats available too. It is, as you’d expect, not cheap - lunch is around double the cost of anything else in the neighbourhood. It doesn’t seem to put anyone off. Downside is appallingly twee language everywhere and slightly underwhelming bread these days - but I’ll forgive that if the food continues to excel. "

"well not quite sure it meets the hype - the food was reliably good, not particularly memorable. Does have a bit a feel of a big name branding the spinoff."

"Some fabulous dishes in a pleasantly relaxed atmosphere, if slightly uneven in parts. A brief visit so not much to say. Go for the specials!"

"Great place (for what it is - medium price). Fairly meaty and only one or two veggie dishes - but those were very well done.Busy!"

"Lively and buzzy, even on a Monday night in February. I was delighted to be accommodated, as a solo diner. I opted for the fish pie which was a delight, with plenty of variety in the filling and a plentiful topping. A half carafe of great house white wine and a packed restaurant suggests that this place is well loved by the locals and for good reason - excellent scran!"
