Superb pub in Northfield with excellent choice of craft beers, great outdoor seating overlooking the river and friendly service. Their "contented hour" 3-6pm is well worth a visit.

Excellent service from Kenny Hogg. He located a complex problem quickly and fixed it efficiently. Will definitely be using Rapid Rapair in the future.

We have used Anything But Elephants for over ten years and they are just wonderful! They have cared for our cats as well as our house and they always show the personal touch. We are always so happy to be able to rely on them when we go away. I think our cats look forward to them coming! Outstanding service. Strongly recommended.
