A lovely, friendly atmosphere and I'd... More

We go here nearly every Sunday for a Sunday dinner it's by far the best tasting dinner around here. The portion sizes are large but smaller plate sizes r available on request.

Small pub, dog friendly. Lovely food. The Sunday lunch is particularly nice. Best to book though as can get busy at peek times.
