After a long spell as a series of significantly unappealing bars, it was certainly good news when this poor old Victorian pub was given a new lease of life by the people behind a number of nearby pubs, including the Birdcage (who, if they're not careful, will be in danger of becoming the Starbucks of the N16 pub scene). The return to its original name brought it definitively back into 'pub' territory, although it's aims are distinctly upmarket - loungey sofas, candlelight and gastroesque food are all present and correct, unfortunately with prices simply too high. Compared to others in the chain, its also less good; the restaurant section is pretty unappealing, as it overlooks a major traffic junction and elsewhere suffers from almost too many armchairs. Nonetheless, our opinions appear to be in a minority as its usually busy, attracting 20 and 30 something Stokey residents like moths to a light bulb, often accompanied by prams and toddlers. Still, there're a couple of good ales on tap and service is exemplary. Overall its fine here, but we prefer other places in the area; its almost - but not quite - the three pint pub we we're hoping for.

If you get here when it's not rammed, it's a nice enough pub. Big, but quite cosy, relatively comfy and not too loud. Good Sunday roast.

Don't idly pick the extraneous wax off the candles, though, because I did that tonight and a barmaid stormed up, said "Don't destroy the candles, they're really expensive", and snatched the candle off our table. Bizarre.

I would not have set a foot in the place whilst that french tyrant was running the show. However, word on the street is he's been giving the boot. I'll be heading there this weekend. First round's on me!

Started going there three weeks ago. The service is second to none and all are made to feel welcome. The beer prices are comparable to the area and although the food might appear on the pricey side, the quality of the food is second to none and of a very high quality. Each dish is cooked from point of order, no Brakes foods her. A great experience and Anne and I will continue to visit this establishmentt on a regular basis.
