I only had drinks and some cheese and biscuits, the cheese and biscuits were expensive fro the quantity and type of cheese on offer. The place itself was really nice and the staff were as well. My only real gripe if you can call it that? It was really quiet, I mean really quiet. You could hear yourself talking, and... More

Our small party had... More

Been visiting the pub for many years for both drink and food. As others have said, the staff are friendly and helpful and also the beer is well looked after. I have mused a number of times after eating there that perhaps the value is not that good and the food not quite as good as they think it tries... More

Cosy traditional pub offering excellent food and service. The four of us ordered a variety of dishes and all found them to be both tasty and generous. A nice range of traditional beers on tap.

Great service, great food, great atmosphere! Good old fashioned quality English pub - just like you see in the tourist brochures but this is authentic. Closed for a wake on the first night of my stay in the area I was glad I went on my second night. Truly fantastic!
