Had lunch, staff were fantastic, food fantastic. Nothing too much bother. I was amazed at the price, it was about half that I would have to pay here in Guernsey, where I live, for the same food! Also, there is no VAT in Guernsey!

Nice traditional pub where you can still get a good pint of local HSB.😀 Airy restaurant area with good quality if unimaginative food and courteous service. Reasonable vegetarian options. Avoid the salad bar though as it is located next to the bar and I witnessed...More

From flooring and furniture to a new kitchen fit-out, we’re making plenty of changes here. The pub will retain its traditional feel, but with a modern twist - using real woods, leather chairs, and a colour palette of dark greens and greys for a smart, contemporary feel.
