The beer is well priced but more importantly looked after so tastes superb. Not only are you given a warm welcome nothing is seems too much trouble. Visit... More

We were advised by Jackie to book, as we had previously turned up on a Sunday & they were fully booked. The food is essentially English & good quality, with a good selection & other dishes that can be ordered with 24 hours notice (most unusual, but a nice touch). My steak was cooked to perfection & my husband's chicken... More
