Venue

Very tastefully refurbished pub-restaurant also boasting outdoor seating overlooking a green space. A big hit with the locals if online comments and bustling trade even on a Tuesday evening are anything to go by.

Menu

Steaks, burgers, pies, fish and chips, ‘swinging skewers’ of teriyaki beef, chicken satay and the like, plus some salads. A starter of moules marinière (£5.50) was lip-smackingly garlicky while chicken liver and port parfait (£4.95) was light-textured and well counterpointed with a sweet red onion marmalade. A main from the daily specials menu of lamb hotpot with spicy, sticky red cabbage was elegantly done, the near-equal of Nigel Haworth’s version. Steak pie with the ubiquitous triple-cooked chips was a pleasing, obviously home-made belly-filler. Apple crumble with custard was a subtle version of what is too often an over-sweet dish.

Decor and ambience

Stone walls, wooden floors, leather bench seating give all the elements of a traditional pub but with some very chic titivations.

Service

Excellent

Cost

Three courses for two, with wine, £70.
