The separate drinking area has plenty of seats. The dining area offers pub classics with a modern twist including steaks, beer-battered fish-n-chips, bangers and mash, burgers, grills and salads. Pizzas with sour dough or spelt bases made-to-order. The lunch menu includes open sandwiches, an express menu for those short of time, and a specially designed children's menu including chicken goujons and five-inch pizzas.
