As we only had a short lunch time, we decided to go the bar side of the pub for food, the bar food was very good, fresh bread, fresh salad and... More

The waiter left us for just enough time to get settled and came back for drinks order. The choice of meats for Sunday Roast was excellent as were the alternative from menu & black... More

This is pub grub at its best! A good choice, fairly priced and generous portions. We recently went for Sunday lunch and the serving was probably one of the largest we have ever been served. To top it all the staff are friendly and efficient.

Food is normally very nice, but one this occasion it was not great at all. Staff were rude and not attentive. Had to go up to the bar numerous occasions and ask for drinks, bill etc.
