Lovely outdoor area, great ambiance and very warm with the heaters. Just need to work on the presentation. G&T served without ice and no fruit/cucumber as expected these days. We’ll still be back though

Loved everything about our visit apart from problems with the ordering app...some things were missing and some of our party didn't have app enabled phones which was difficult. Teething problems I'm sure

Lovely friendly pub, thank goodness we booked in advance, it was very busy. Our very tasty food came quickly, staff are very nippy and helpful! The menu is limited probably due to you know what, but it was great to have a choice of mezzes. Second visit for us and the pub gets better each time.

Not the best menu choice, meze for starter nice but very expensive and price misleading on the menu. Was disappointed with the chicken gyros main Pitta very hard and whole thing unappealing chicken chopped up into small pieces and bland was not worth the money.

It was all a bit to sterile for me, I also think that if my parents (pensioners) had have been there on there on, the whole online thing what have been totally overwhelming, and they wouldn’t have been able to cope at all. I understand the reason behind this, but there are other ways to do this
