I visited here with 2 friends a busy Saturday evening. An extensive menu was provided including 3 vegetarian dishes on the list each quite unique and a vegetarian special. All being vegetarian we were thrilled. The bar offered a great selection of real ales too. Staff friendly and attentive. I have it on good Authority the deserts were divine!

Visited early evening on 2nd May 2015. Staff very pleasant but decor needs attention and seating by window threadbare. Ordered food which arrived quite quickly but was slightly disappointing for the price as was quite expensive for a pub and just your typical pub food. Would I go back, no.

Have only visited this pub at lunch times which I do regularly. The food is generally good to excellent by pub standards. The beers are Robinsons Indeed the staff here are first rate, friendly, helpful and universally cheerful without being OTT
