I've always like the Rum Runner and it's always been a good pub. A nice choice available and polite and friendly staff. Could do with a lick of paint.

We had an excellent lunchtime meal on Sunday. Although all four of us were vegan the meal was well presented and tasty, which is unusual for vegan pub food. Further, the ambience and friendliness of the staff could not have been bettered. Non veggies during this visit were equally impressed. Highly recommended.

Love the 'local pub/community' atmosphere that the rum runner provides. Staff are always friendly and welcoming and the food is beautiful. I would recommend calling in to anyone visiting.
