About Our Name

For decades British food has been the culinary joke of many nations. It’s been labelled as bland and unappetising and you might have even heard the phrase, “The day you get a good British meal is the day pigs will fly”.

We are pleased to say those days are long gone. Our traditional British pub food is not only a joy to eat but it will have you coming back for more.
