Second day running that I had lunch in here and I met up with Jason of this site. Beer list as for yesterday except that the house beer had run out.

Lunchtime and busy seemed popular for a lunch venue with many tables reserved as taken. Despite this a air of peace and calm with efficient friendly bar staff, plus the children ban added to the ambience. We partook in a great value lunch even before ChrisE presented his 25% off voucher.

Monday lunchtime and a very pleasant place to stop for a couple of pints and a bite to eat. Very good service from friendly and helpful bar staff. I was amused to overhear a woman telling her other half that she absolutely forbade him to have a second drink.
