We live literally around the corner from the pub - it is our local and has been shut for months. The new tenants have put their hearts into refurbishing the whole pub and it now really looks the part. The menu is relatively brief but padded out with specials.

We were not disappointed with the food or service, in fact both were very good. Management & staff very efficient & friendly. We shall definitely be... More

We went for a family meal today and we thought we should try it since it has recently reopened. food was excellent, well presented, very tasty and a very reasonable price. child's portions were virtually the same size as the adults. We will definitely be back!

I went with friends for a catch up. Wish We had gone somewhere else. Wasn't my choice. Staff were miserable. Some were rude. The food was horrible. Give it a wide berth.
