I tried to get in this Trip Advisor highly rated pub when the Tattoo was on-didn't book and couldn't get a table, so this time around(having seen the enormous Yorkshires) I booked for Sunday afternoon with my best friends. The young guy who served us was excellent. However, we were very disappointed that they'd run out of roast dinners(apparently they only do 25, of which half can be reserved and the other half are for walk ins.) We weren't aware of this policy, otherwise we would certainly have reserved them. Two of us shared a steak pie-the last one, two of us had fish and chips. Comments on the pie were that the gravy was too runny, and the side of veg was very small. The fish and chips were ok, fish a bit dry, but the batter was lovely. In fairness, we were in the mood for Sunday lunch so this choice was a satisfactory second. Two friends ordered cheese board to share-never ever seen such a miserly cheese board in my life. The panna cotta on the other hand was exquisite, the best I've ever tasted and I've sampled many in Italy. I wasn't in fact going to have dessert, but tasted one which had been ordered and had to have one! Wine was good; we didn't try the whisky! Would possibly go again, but still baffled by their Sunday lunch system. Perhaps if I'd phoned rather than book online this information may have been imparted. More

Good food at a reasonable price. There were 6 of us and we all chose the 2 course fixed price menu which was £10.50 or £10.95 with the option to purchase a bottle of wine for under £10. Fantastic value and delicious food. Waiting staff were very friendly, we had a good laugh with our waiter. I've been before and will definitely be back. More

Super food and in a beautiful Georgian dining room. Food quite inventive and with good local ingredients. Service a little haphazard. Some very experienced others new and didn't know the menu or wine list like they should. Wine list is short and expensive but well chosen. Great range of whisky of course! More

We enjoyed our meal. The food was tasty. The staff were friendly although service was a bit slow at times which I think was more due to the kitchen than the waiting staff. This wasn't a problem as we weren't in a rush and we will definitely return. More
