We were staying in a B/B just up the road so decided to have an evening meal here. Pub was fairly quiet. we decided on our meals which arrived quickly, big portions!! Everything you would expect from an out of town pub. My bitter was a bit cloudy, so asked for a replacement which was changed immediately.
