GEORGY PORGY pudding and pie

Good pub in the centre of town, doing a good selection of quality dishes. Everything on the menu seemed tempting , with lots to choose from, The salmon was cooked beautifully , the chicken stuffed with venison was also very good as was the home made chips .

We had Sunday dinner here, it was very nice. The only thing I didn't like was that it was 1/2 a chicken when I preferred carved chicken. The sticky toffee pudding was lovely.

First time I had a chicken dish (pan fried) bit of a risk as it can always be dry and tastless - but it was really good. 2nd time, following my partners recommendation I had the Steak Pie. Well cooked tasty hearty meals.
