Jake (the landlord) and his staff always on hand with a warm welcome. Nothing too much trouble for them. Food is always excellent and also a good choice of Specials to be had. This is a place not to be missed.

Upon waiting for half an hour for the owner to come back from the cellar to take our food (not sure why she was the only staff member capable of writing down a list) i decided to fire up the trusty Trip Advisor...
