Fortunately we had booked a table but the place was packed when we arrived. The food is copious and reasonably priced and the over worked staff held up really well under pressure. Not gourmet food, more traditional pub grub.

He was very friendly and efficient. The food was tasty and very good; a choice of three meats - turkey, pork or beef. I asked for a slice of each and... More
