For a swift escape to a Traditional oak beamed Pub - try The Green Man.
The pub certainly stands out as you approach it because suddenly you are transported into the countryside in the UK.
I ordered a Thai dish and macaroni cheese. The Thai dish was dreadful but the macaroni cheese was superb - unfortunately my daughter got to eat that one.
There is a restaurant upstairs called 'Carte Blanche' which has some good reviews and is open in the evenings.
BUT there is a rumor that it's been taken over?
