Has a function room downstairs (free hire subject to takings), a small upstairs balcony and a ground floor. Toilets are downstairs, so not easily accessible. It's generally very busy with city types from about 6pm-8pm (overflowing onto the road in good weather), quieter afterwards. Busy but not too crowded at lunch time. They are very anti-children.
Food is served 11am-8pm Monday to Friday. [Flick]? isn't terribly impressed with the food, finding it overpriced and not very exciting. The specials are usually OK, but they have an unfortunate way with vegetables. Lorna had a nice ploughmans, but that was at lunch time, so maybe it's better then. virtualsue had a fish pie which was delicious and was really happy to have Chimay on tap.
The range of beers downstairs isn't as good as in the main bar.
