4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2014 NEW

Was taken here for lunch recently by my 93 year old mother. I ordered the fish and chips with mushy peas and was really impressed with the quality of the meal. The fish was fresh and flaky, the hand cut chips perfectly cooked and the mushy peas were just right. Mum had liver and bacon with mustard mash and she... More

This really is a pub / restaurant that welcomes dogs and their owners. I've never seen so many dogs enjoying a drink in their local! The food and service is good and a with very pleasant areas to sit both inside and out

Popped in here after a nice walk. Dogs were very welcome. Friendly atmosphere, very relaxed. Had a really lovelly (and I mean lovelly) burger followed by a really nice crumble. Price was very reasonable. Will definitely visit next time in the vicinity.

We had a great anniversary meal here a couple of months ago and decided to try it out again, with friends - we have found a number of local eateries very variable but this is a well-run "tight-ship"! The service was again excellent - well done, Lauren, Ferne and Ashley whose friendly attention to detail was impressive. The food was... More

I love this place in the evening for a meal but haven't tried lunch in a long time. I was impressed with the menu and our sandwiches were lovely. I recommend the peppers and mozzarella on ciabatta. The chunky chips were lovely and the price was good too. A quirky pub with good food and pleasant staff. You can't beat... More

Wait staff was very nice. Antipasto starter tasty. Mains so disappointing. Would probably have been better to order the burger or fish and chips given it is a pub after all. The duck breast was tough, chewy, and dry. Very overcooked and needed more sauce. Though the sauce was very salty. The potato was old and reheated. You could taste... More

visited with a few friends the pub was welcoming, the beer choice plentiful and the food portions something else. And if that wasn't enough the prices were very reasonable. We will be back.

It may seem odd to describe a humble burger as ‘delicious’ but they keep it simple, (with a drop of Lea and Perrins I think) do it well and it’s a little masterpiece that’s typical of a confident kitchen that only elaborates if it improves the dish. It is a fine rustic pub with an even better dining space and... More
