The food is good wholesome grub at very fair prices. They always have a couple of decent real ales on and the quiz nights are great fun.... More

The pub is also a massive plus, very friendly and a good mix of tourists and locals, great bar food as well, especially the Yorkshire pudding. Location wise it is... More
