Great Food

Great pub, with ample seating in two rooms. The food is lovely and the portion sizes are substantial. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly.

Proper pub, great atmosphere and jukebox. Went a few times over a weekend in bowness but unfortunately never ate as they stopped serving 8pm on the Friday night. Great beers and service, just not so keen on all the stuffed creatures hanging around the place!

Tucked down a back street but actually only few yards from pay and display car park which handy as my partner is disabled. Full of character with fascinating decor which has you studying walls and ceiling. Really cosy with fire in both rooms, we sat by the old fashioned range to start.

O what brilliant place. Really friendly, food to die for. Only down side is that dogs are not allowed inside. Understandable because of the size and because it serves a lot of food. Outside is fully set up though with umbrellas, heaters & water bowls so I can't really complain. Try the pate, gorgeous with the Cumberland sause. Fish pie... More

A wonderful place to have a bite to eat and a few drinks. Lovely and welcoming staff, only thing I can say is that the food is a very large portion but you can't complain about that and the price is good. Its a fabulous pub, shall be back again in future.

We were going to visit other hostelries but there was just no point moving out of this cosy old-fashioned gem of a pub.
