They both came with a lovely salad, but I would say that they could each have been cooked through a little more. Nothing unsafe, but the onions with the sausage were quite firm and the... read more

A lovely pub with well presented excellent food. The chips live up to the great reviews! The hot sandwiches are delicious but come with French fries not the acclaimed thick chips. The service was friendly and not intrusive. The only criticism was that the room was rather cold despite a lovely log burner.
