We stayed at the Cedar Court Hotel down the road and one of the staff mentioned this pub as serving nice food! She wasn't wrong...it was first class. Absolutely gorgeous home cooked food. Home made chicken pie and the a steak were perfect. Well within a reasonable too. Nice staff made for a nice visit. Rob & Michelle
