From the moment we arrived at the pub you could not fail to be impressed. We received a friendly welcome from a young lady that I took to be Pauline. We were offered a choice of seats and she ran through the 'specials board' with us. Nothing was too much trouble, even giving us biscuits for the dogs. All the... More
