“As good as last year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

It's very rare I visit a place I loved before and it lives up to the unreasonably high expectations that I have built up. But this place did!

The steak and ale pie was fab! The veggie burger, chicken burger and pasty all demolished by various members of the family. Friendly welcoming staff.


We will return!
