“new landlord has ruined this local”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

why is it that when a local pub which was doing ok with good ale and pub food then new landlord takes over and out goes the dart board pool table no tv. takes off the lager most locals would drink fosters. menu not what you would call pub food any more. ok it is summer and will get summer trade and passing trade but just wait until winter months when local pubs rely on locals .I can see another pub closing.

“Nice enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

A nice enough pub but could be so much better with just a bit more thought to décor / menu etc. With better pubs within 3 miles I doubt we will go back

“Yummy Sunday Roasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Absolutely love the roasts here. Never had a bad one and we've been about 5 times in the last year. Would highly recommend it, although worth booking a head. The staff are lovely and it is warm and welcoming. Just needs to improve the wine list :-)
