The cosy, comfortable space is the ideal ambience for a laid-back pub lunch and drinks with friends. Tuck into a scrumptious and hearty lamb shank, but if you prefer something lighter, choose from an array of café meals: salads, wraps, burgers, fish and chips and a super-tasty chicken and mushroom pie.
