Had a great meal ,after watching the fireworks. I have visited this pub every year since 1983, and have to say this is the best I have ever known it. The owners are friendly and it goes with out saying that the locals are also friendly and very welcoming.

Met up with some friends the other evening. All very unexpected but as we were chatting realised that time had gone on so decided to pop out for a bite to eat. I had the pulled pork nachos to start and the steak for a mate as I was hungry. All 4 of us were very pleased with the meal... More

This is a very popular destination pub especially for Sunday lunches. There is no carvery but the plates lunches are fantastic, great portion sizes and the quality is outstanding. You really must book for a Sunday, we saw three groups turned away looking for a walk in!
