Went with a group of people after a dinnertime wedding and we were accommodated in a room at the side in the pub. The food was reasonable and good value at lunch (two for a tenner). The bar staff were friendly and everything we asked for they supplied. And to cap it all the beer is well kept!

Great atmosphere in a really old pub. A good selection of really well-cooked and well-presented food at a very reasonable price. Very friendly staff!

We expected the usual fish and chips, steak pie sort of menu but were delighted to see a great choice including a fabulous... More

We had specials of the day off the blackboard menu which were very good so went back another night where the special of the day was fish in batter ? Very disappointing ? It might just have been bought from the freezer cabinet of the local supermarket ! Small portion and the batter was full of grease.
