Ryan, 41, launched the venture two years ago with old school friends Kelvin Gregory, 45, and Bernie Taylor, 41.
After cocktails and an amazing six course taster menu I could barely make it through the door.
The eatery combines traditional pub favourites like burgers and club sandwiches with fine dining and Ryan regularly pops in to enjoy the menu himself.
It was a fantastic night and I’m looking forward to returning to try the roast dinner which I’m told comes with huge Yorkshires and plenty of gravy!
I placed this story about the launch with the Daily Star Sunday.
