Pretty much standard pub grub menu, usually reasonably presented. Expect to pay about 20% more than you would normally expect. The drinks are also expensive. Not many locals patronise the pub, which is hardly surprising at these prices. Free wifi. (indoors ok - outdoors it...More

Food and service was good, however the surroundings are looking very tired and in desperate need of a makeover.
