This is a great place if you enjoy the traditional pub atmosphere coupled with a separate informal restaurant serving excellent food at reasonable prices. Tried the cow pie (half portion) with chips and veg and I struggled to finish it as much as I enjoyed it. Don't think even Desperate Dan could manage to polish off a full portion! Friendly... More

Fantastic food and a good pint of Guiness , The Cow Pie is a hell of a meal and takes some finishing the meat is tender and you will need a big walk the next day to get rid of the calories but we'll worth it.
