We went there for a drink and evening meal , staff were friendly and the food was standard pub food. The area around the nice fire was nice , but the rest of the pub was like a " canteen". Got quiet quickly at night through the weekdays.

We popped into have a beer and the ladies a coffee. The staff were friendly and service was good. The coffee was fine, but the scones and cakes didn't taste as fresh as we would have expected, but reasonably priced
