Great place to eat. Beautifully presented, tasty food and good value for money. We had not booked but getting a table was no problem on a Saturday night. Time between courses was good giving us time to relax and chat.

Great pub grub in a lovely location. Have been here many times and I would recommend their fish and chunky chips! Whether you eat in the restauraunt ir the pub side the foods just as good, theres also a nice outside space ideal for a drink on a summers evening though it can be quite busy
