Beautiful historical pub in an incredible location. Sunday roast was very good and service was personal.

    Everything was perfect, as every time I've been there.

    Our family meal was on the 2nd floor in The Grill.
    The surroundings, the Venue, the Architecture of the Roof was stunning, with the dark of night and subtle lighting. It made for a very comfortable setting.

    Service was very good and the staff couldn’t do enough for us.

    Not all dishes available from the menu.
    The Rib eye steak was ok and others were happy with the Chicken.
    I certainly will return at night and will try the Seafood Main.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it. We arrived early and ended up eating in the tavern instead of the grill (the grill did not open until 1pm).

    Awful experience. Would never return. Such a shame as looks such a lovely place from the outside and online. Arrived for our table which we had booked online, this entitled us to a free glass of champagne each. Was greeted at the door and told 5 main dishes were unavailable. Sat down, member of staff came over and asked us what we would like to drink. I replied "When I made the booking it said we get a free glass of champagne each" to that he replied "well if that's what your booking said I'll get it". Ordered food, whilst waiting we watched the chef blow his nose on a piece of blue paper several times and then go back to preparing food without washing his hands. My food was ready and remained under heat lamps for a good 5 minutes before my husbands was put next to it. Mine included a rocket salad which was warm by the time it came to the table. My husbands burger was suppose to have pickled onion rings, these were missing and my chicken was burnt on one side. Generally the food was acceptable but way overpriced. When it came to leaving we expressed all of these points to the "so called" manager and he apologised and we left. Very disappointed !!

    We ate a very delicious traditional fish and chips menu, also a sorbet and had our favorite IPA. Kind service and a cozy atmosphere. All thumbs up!

    Service und Essen/Getränke im Restaurant Grill hervorragend. Die Geräuschkulisse an unserem Tisch in der Nähe der Küche durch die Lüftung war zu laut und deshalb störend.
