A lovely pub with its own brewery, I love these places, the beers were ok and the food served was very good. Nice friendly staff and reasonable prices considering the location. Me and the wife have been here six times now and will return again on our tours very soon.

I could have chosen so many things off this menu. We sat outside as it was sunny and warm. The staff were very friendly and the food gorgeous and very reasonably priced.
