I'm not really sure that this place really qualifies as a pub, but as a place to go for a good meal, it's probably the best option in the area.
I headed here for a Sunday Roast, with minimal expectations, but was shocked to find a well kept pub with an excellent menu and helpful friendly staff. The meat for the roast was fresh from Smithfield market and came with homemade yorkshire pudding and gravy, roast potatoes and fresh veg. It was so good that we agreed to return in the near future to sample some of the food from the week-day menu.
The beer on offer was Harveys and Adnams, with a third handpump not in use. There was also an extensive range of lagers on tap. There isn't much seating at the front of the pub for drinkers, just a few high tables alongside the bar. Most of the space is occupied by the restaurant. Anyone who has been to the 'Glamorgan' in Addiscombe will know what to expect, as the two pubs are very similar.
All in all, very enjoyable and I look forward to returning again soon.

great fish and chips! Seems I was lucky on Tuesday we got two for just a tenner! Looks like this happens every tuesday, hansome.
Peroni on draught, expensive but you get what you pay for even the glass is you ask the new owner or landlord? Not sure but these northerners know how to run a friendly pub. Check out the real pork scratchings.
