Very nice indeed. Friendly staff make you feel welcome as soon as you step through the door. I'm here at an odd hour between lunch and dinner but thankfully the kitchen stays open right through. I love the mix of people from all age groups (in prams to white hair) and all genders and some 4-legged customers too.
Great selection of beers on tap from local breweries to something looking like its from Hawaii. Foodwise I was going to go for a simple spaghetti with hot smoked salmon until a couple of starters caught my eye... So opted for the seasonal asparagus served in brown butter and crispy onions. It was perfectly cooked with a moorish richness. Followed by another starter of crispy octopus on a bed of spicy Borlotti beans. Fantastic. This is what a local pub should be all about. Miso local.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Do not leave here without ordering the Buffalo Wings!! Yummy.
