Called in here after a long walk, the (well behaved) dogs were welcomed with a bowl of water, and we had their local brew beer. I had a halloumi wrap with fries which was just right.

We walked in and walked out.No welcome, Dingy decor and grubby entrance. Menu very poor for Sunday lunch. Not recommended by me.

Just had a beer here, but very friendly to walkers and seems to have a varied menu and a good range of ales. May use in future.

Very enjoyable visit, great staff, great food, great beer, great service. Visited with my wife, son and two dogs and couldn't have been made to feel more welcome if we had been family. I would highly recommend a visit.
