Fantastic local pub in walking distance from our house. Food has always been amazing and excellent value for money. Can highly recommend Sunday lunch and they now even provide a 'doggy Sunday lunch'. Susie and Team are always welcoming. Great atmosphere.

We have had lunch here several times, and have really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. It would be hard to beat for value for money, and you will never leave feeling hungry (I recommend the Hoisin Chicken Stir Fry at £6.50)! It is busier in...More
