Wanted good quality pub food with beer and that is what I got. Lovely handmade cheeseburger with great bread bun, salad garnish and chunky chips. Good quality and portions. Strongly recommended

We ordered calamari and onion rings, well all you could taste was oil and grease. No onion or calamar taste at all. We had stomach ache after.
