Try the faggots they are amazing! If you can manage more than a main course you will do well! This is a great experience for overseas visitors including Londoners! Great value too! If the weather is good it is nice to sit outside. Really good staff!

We visited this nice little pub/ restaurant for food on Friday night. All the staff are very friendly and make you welcome, the choice on the menu and specials board is vast. The quality of food is very good and the portion sizes aren't for the faint hearted, it's very busy so be sure to book.

I've eaten here many times and always had the friendliest welcome. I've often asked for something not on the menu and it's never a problem. Give it a try and make your own mind up. Food is great and you'll always be welcomed.

Having eaten well at this place a couple of times, we booked a lunch for 10 - immediately family - following the funeral service and cremation of our father. We had previously been looked after reasonably well, so thought it was a safe bet. However, the landlady was in no mood for service and was delighted not to accommodate the... More

Probably the worst food ever, Rib eye steak tough & grisly had it replaced 2nd one no better, chips massive & greasy, onion rings soggy, our own cooked ham was wet super market type, Rump steaks tough, portions excessive large should concentrate on Quality not Quantity especially at prices on Menu
