Stopped for lunch and had nice food and excellent brew (lots of interesting choices). Food portions are very generous, we had fish and chips and chicken parma, could have had just one and shared. Pub was very busy for lunch on a Sunday with both inside and outside seating. Helpful and friendly staff.

Meals were being served which looked ok but when we spotted gammon and chips on the specials board we decided to stay... More

I had dinner on 19 February with three local friends. The placed was fairly crowded both inside and at the outside tables, but we found a table for four next to the downstairs fireplace. After two quit nice pints, we order food. One ordered the salmon, another the chicken parma ($23) and the third the Lancashire Hotpot ($20). No one... More

Great cold Guinness on tap on a hot day! Good pub food and the Sunday roast was a winner. I loved the name so had to go in.
