She had remembered my request for GF food and came out to reassure me about the menu. I also was... read more

Found this on tripadvisor only a short walk from our hotel. Nice friendly pub atmosphere, food surprisingly good and better than most pub fare. Staff were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we (and other guests as we overheard) had a good experience. Also good and very tasty vegetarian options which was a...

The meal was, as usual, superb. The service second to none. We were actually served by the elusive Rich - now that was a bonus.... More
