Delicious roasts

Delicious roast dinner - although I would have liked a bit more gravy and we only had one roast potato! Really nice pub with a great atmosphere.

Food is always lovely, nice selection of beers and a brilliant atmosphere! Not great for tall people in there, can't be helped though. Staff are always friendly and very accommodating.

Excellent food, but very busy - even on a Thursday night. Make sure you book a table. The sausage & mash were very good.
