The pub is not that easy to find, but well worth tracking down. We came and found it was a quiz night and decided to join in. Everyone was very friendly and the food was excellent. Great local beer as well. Everything you ever want!...More

Had a very friendly welcome, some great boutique beers & attentive service. The menu was varied and we could not decide so we ordered sharing platters & placed them in the middle. All were hot, tasty and delicious, would definately recommend!

First visit to this place, nice to try a different pub, beer was excellent, but the slow cooked pork was not the most tender, and we could cook better at home, the salad was way over seasoned. Too little to choose from on the menu.

Don't miss this great restaurant! The food was really good and we couldn't resist having dessert. The bartender was very friendly and helpful and even let us try some of the ciders before we decided on which ones to go with.
