This is a great pub - food was truly excellent for a pub....and prices v.reasonable. I had pate for a starter and it was truly fabulous; my son was in foodie heaven over his starter too. Main courses were also good, and the meal for three of us was sixty pounds including drinks.

The service was very good - fast and friendly - and the food was good pub fare. The eating area is rather plain and not very comfortable (right next... More

Good honest food, not too badly priced with a good selection of bar drinks. A few of the locals were rather strange (drunk overweight girl lying down on a sofa all night etc) but we had what we came in for, good food and drink. Would probably try somewhere else next time we are back though.
