This is an iconic pub located near the station. There is no menu instead there is a large blackboard with lots of choice. The food is of a good quality and the portions are large.

Enjoyed a lovely evening meal with friends in this busy heritage Victorian pub. The meal choices available are selected from the chalkboard menu on the wall in the main bar area and this was excellent and varied. We chose the baked Camembert starter to share...More
