I went there about two months ago with my girlfriend on a Saturday night. I thought the decor and location was great, as was the atmosphere. The food was nice but the portions were a little small. It tends more towards well-presented nouvelle cuisine than hearty filling food and it was a little expensive, but overall we were fairly pleased.

Called in Friday lunchtime. They now have waitress service which is nice. The food was very good though a touch expensive. This was simply a bar meal (in my case bbq chicken burger) as the place was packed out with students who had passed their exams celebrating with their families.

In fact, I felt somewhat underdressed!

It's nice to go on a (ha, ha, remember these?) 'summer's day' and sit on the patio. Then again, it's a pub that serves booze so any time's a good time to go.

I know, I know. Sorry for that.

I just had a touch of nostalgia. Endless summer days and sultry nights; light, loose clothing, the Pimms on ice and the sounds of the birds in the trees.

In the distance, the sound of an ambulance rushing off to some drink-driver who's crashed into a tree, the ice-cream vendor shouting for help as he's just been robbed by thee nine year old kids.

The grass on which you lay, strewn with dog-muck and discarded needles. Mungo Jerry on t' wireless singing In The Summertime.

Summer eh? Eee, them were t' days...,

Ostrich burgers on the new menu now with waitress service and me Jack Daniels and Coke!

I went for lunch yesterday and was really dissapointed with the food! I had fishcakes; they (or should I say it, there was just one little one) didn't taste of anything and looked like it had come out of a packet, frozen... the chilli and coriander sauce was just a drizzle of olive oil round the side of the plate!

It's a lovely location and the service was great, but then again we were the only people in there!! There was no atmosphere whatsoever!

- Had to try the fish cake after your comments, It's handmade and not frozen at all. You do get one for 4.50, but it does not say on the menu Fishcakes, just Fish cake. Its on dressed salad and made with pure white fish with lemongrass,- for a starter it's tops.

p.s. - it's based on a sheffield thing London Lass, and if you come from London, you might not get it!

Sounds awful.

Jackdanny - do you ever give up pretending to be a satisfied customer?
I would have thought if it was so good there would be plenty of people singing its praises.

I had my wedding there and the food was fantastic. It almost looked too good to eat the presentation was that good. We had crayfish cocktail for starters, chicken in white wine and tarragin sauce for main and fresh fruit kebab for dessert.
