Best fish and chips I've ever had! Lovely old, traditional pub with local ales and cozy rooms. I had the hake and chips, amazing! Super thick fish with thin, crisp batter and gorgeous chips.

This is the sort of pub you walk into as a stranger and immediately feel at home. Fish and chips were first rate -- very generous portion and lovely crispy batter.

Stopped here on a cold wet day in March for sunday Lunch. The fire was roaring in the well stocked bar. Its a traditional "old school" pub. Ordered sunday lunch from the bar as we had our dog with us. It came quickly and was delicious. The beef was cooked to perfection and 5 different vegetables and a yorkshire pudding........... More

Great atmosphere, feels like a "proper pub" even when full of tourists. Not tarted up at all and when there is live music almost the perfect place to chill with a pint of tribute whilst the wife does Seasalt, Joules, Quba etc etc
