Good Pub Grub
This is a place I've been to quite a few times. It's got a good atmosphere, great surroundings and the food has always been pretty good.
Thumbs up again to their food. I ordered the lamb salad with caramelised onion, pumpkin, feta and pinenuts. It was pretty good, fresh and the lamb was cooked to perfection (pink in the middle, it was just right - the way I like it). The feta gave it that salty kick and the sweetness from the onions and a sweet dressing topped it off as a well balanced and delicious salad.
I did have one complaint though - that there wasn't more. I would have probably liked a bit more meat in the salad, but hey, it was all round good.
I've got to say also their menu is pleasing. It has the good old pub favourites you expect when you go to a pub and it has something a little more for the foodie who likes something a bit more adventurous and special.
