My wife and I took our two sons (28 and 25) plus respective girlfriends there for a casual dinner on a recent Sunday evening. Looks like a pub, feels like a pub… actually feels a bit grubby. Initially, our waitress had an attitude problem, but it seemed to go away as she decided that I wasn't going to be one of “those” difficult customers that waiters/managers love to hate. From that point, things changed. The atmosphere was cheerful in a pubby way, with the odd strange looking person, but generally not too loud and raucus. The wine list was acceptable, though I really don't think that there's a lot of imagination in it. The main saving grace is the food which is “always” (in the twice I've dined there) been well executed and subtle yet unabashed. I ate venison and enjoyed it very much. My sons + other halves loved the place – felt very much at home, at ease, able to be vocal and laugh, to eat, drink and enjoy. The value was really not bad for the overall experience too. What more can you ask for on a Sunday evening ?
