Why we love it

The name may bring back memories of those dreaded GCSE English days but do not be put off, this place is the perfect mix of traditional and trendy. Take their bar snacks for example: cookies, wasabi peas, pickled eggs, jelly beans, and many more (no peanuts in sight). The staff are super friendly and by the end of the night you will probably end up thinking that they are the Romeo to your Juliet. They are hot on the music scene and host live music events from reggae to jazz.
Time to totter down here we think!


Their beer and boule for a cracking £10 on Wednesday nights
Outside beer garden (plus BBQ for those rare sunny days)

The food included was amazing! And great value. Only marked down because it was very busy and cramped outside


The best Shakespeare I've ever been to


A great pub with a great front of house team


Great food at an amazing price and the Tapas plus drink deal included a proper real ale rather than some generic mass produced rubbish!


Lovely staff


Great food, lovely atmosphere.
