Outstanding value for money, 2 drinks for under £4, it is a long time since I have paid these prices. On top of this all the staff were polite and efficient, tables were promptly cleared, drinks quickly poured and the place was clean and tidy. Plenty of people eating so the food must be good.

When we arrived our order had not been noted, fortunately we could still be accommodated. This is an interesting pub displaying lots of information about the... More

Her salmon was lovely (so she told me) and my lasagne was beautiful and piping hot (and that makes a change!). The staff were friendly and helpful and as it was initially a bit quiet i was called 'Sir' which... More

The food was absolutely fine.....well cooked, well presented, just what you would expect. The problem came when we asked for a receipt. Being a business trip receipts were required by our company . Firstly... More
