My favorites on the menu are the Chicken Shaslik (Josh and I share), Chicken Korma and garlic Nana. It is a small restaurant, so if you want to be sure to get a seat call in advance for reservations.

Josh booked this one Sunday in early February because its rating were good on Top Table and we love Italian. We went back the next Sunday because our experience was so good! The staff was very friendly and offered us drinks on the house both times. The food was excellent and the live music made everything perfect. Josh had the special both times and was pleased. I enjoyed both my pasta choices porcini mushrooms and ricotta cheese ravioli in butter and sage sauce and the spaghetti in fresh tomato sauce. The house wine was a great compliment to the meal.

My sister and I went to dinner here one Friday night when she was visiting. I booked it because Liz wanted pizza and it had great rating on top table. The food did not disappoint, especially for the value. We shared a bottle of house wine, pizza, pasta and dessert and our total bill was 29 pounds! The pizza and pasta were absolutely delicious and the staff was very friendly and attentive! I will take Josh back for sure.

This pub has lots of character and is worth the trip just to experience the atmosphere. Tucked in the back is a Thai restaurant. The food is very reasonable and actually quite good. It can be very crowded even on week days but they do take reservations in the back. We enjoy finding a spot at one of the pub tables and ordering food. They will bring it up to the front for you!
