I usually come here most sundays as the food is lovely and an ideal price and I can bring my dog in too. Two courses for £11.50 is great value which is fresh homely pub food and a great atmosphere and there is usually singers on guitars on a sunday. Would deffo recommend to anyone who wants a nice atmosphere... More

Had been recommended to us by a friend and we were not disappointed. We chose the meat platter which was just perfect for lunch. Friendly atmosphere and huge selection of local beers.

A varied menu, fabulous choice of beer and nicely done out. However a lot of the food was very greasy and the pub was full of dogs. One or two is ok but it felt like you were eating in a boarding kennel.

Its even doggie friendly which was a necessity for us. The only downside was that we couldn't stay longer. Assistant Manager Spike and his... More
