The menu looks familiar but the quality is exceptional - I had a the Chicken Burger and the chicken was juicy, crispy and delicious. He had Ribs and... More

Since the change of ownership this pub is on the up and still rising. It is trying new things to see what works and what doesn’t which may cause disappointments to some, which is understandable. Tapas is not my thing, but the tapas I have tasted was full of flavour and the Sunday roasts in my opinion are of good... More
