Called in on Sunday afternoon, very busy, but a table found for the three of us in the bar. Good choice of ales on offer and a diverse menu with something for everyone. The Welsh lamb shank fell off the bone, the pork chops enormous and the home made lasagne delicious. Portions were generous and everything cooked to perfection. Staff... More

Everyone agreed that the food was very... More

Booked for a family meal. 3 of us orders steak, all cooked differently, all came out rare! I cut into my steak and discovered a hair so sent it back, it was returned to me several minutes later and when I turned my 'new' steak upside down there was my original cut! They simply flipped it over thinking I wouldn't... More

After being very disappointed at a different pub, we left and ventured here on Christmas eve. We received very good service and the food along with the portion sizes were brilliant. Always a welcoming place to visit.
