“Great Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Had a meal here at the weekend and was really impressed. The pub has a lovely traditional feel and the food was superb. I was particularly pleased to see so many gluten free options. The staff were really good too, very attentive and friendly. We hope to make this a regular haunt!

“Good pub food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

I often meet friends for lunch at this little gem of a place, which serves excellent food at reasonable prices so it is very good value. There is always plenty of choice on the menu together with a selection of specials for the day. It is advisable to book as it is very popular.

“Excellent Meal and Service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Went for a meal here last night and it was excellent.
