On our arrival, they were very solicitous and wanted to check we were happy with where we were seated, as they had moved tables together to accommodate us. We appreciated this attention to detail.

Having recently moved to the area and looking for a new local I was very happy to find this great pub. A team of real professionals run it and everyone can be guaranteed a lovely evening with a combination of good pub food and a friendly welcome.

Very very friendly place to eat. Staff are so friendly, inviting and attentive. The food was excellent - one of the best Steak & Ale pies we've had, and we've had a few. Desserts were lovely too - homemade roulade, very tasty. Envious of the locals, because they have a great pub.

Unfortunately Didn't get a chance to sample the menu as it was Monday & quiz night, no food available. However, enjoyed a few drinks & was made very welcome by landlord & locals. Would definitely visit again as the food comes highly recommended.
