Great Food - Lovely Pub

Have just spent the evening at this pub with friends and had a lovely meal there, I had the Pork Belly with vegtables and home made chips and it was absolutely delicious. Will definately be going back there again.

The food was excellent and arrived promptly. We shared a plate of nachos to start - very tasty ... nice and spicy. We all... More

We had a after shoot dinner at the pub. The food was incredible and hugely impressive compared to other pubs within the same area! Tasty British pub food! Awesome atmosphere! And very welcoming staff and landlord. If there's one pub to visit North of Bury... This is the one!!
