An absolute pleasure. Onglet steak and dauphinoise potatoes that will live in permanent memory with an American merlot (weird) that was gobsmackingly great. Great staff. My new local.

The incompetent, arrogant staff here are a breath of fresh air in a world of professional, friendly and attentive caterers that seem to fill all other pubs with abundance.

Now under the new management this pub still has the same staff issues mentioned in previous posts. Not the most welcoming or helpful.

The Landlord bitter was quite good - but I did have to wait 10 minutes for it to be connected.

It is now kept so dark you can hardly see your your beer and in this cold snap the radiators where only barely on. I was still cold with coat, hat and scarf. Not cosy.

I find it annoying when pubs are too dark. And really hate when they turn down the light in stages early evening. Especially when it is so dark in the evenings now. A nice pint and the evening paper become a chore and I like to see what I am eating! It feels like I am being manipulated and I don't like it.

The Prince George and Arthur, both near by have the perfect ambient light and don't lower it as the evening goes on. Both highly recommended for your evenings pint.

absolutely appalling arrogant staff, especially the two scruffy males.

wouldn't take my order less than 5 minutes before 5pm but kept serving food to a large party of his mates at the patio; on my comeback at 5 pm sharp was told that two of the main courses were not available. he then proceeded by joining them for a good hour - i had to come back to the bar and re-order after a 40 minutes wait!

the food was actually okay but by the time we got it we couldn't wait to leave.

avoid at all cost. ok food, nice layout but they seriously need to change attitude. plenty of good places in the area.
