Called in for somethig to eat when travelling through and was a perfectlly nice pub dressed up in the way that people seem to think appeals but by no means offensive. Food was rather slow coming, despite it being quiet, and was nothing outstanding. Tomahawk...More

Very rude and petty bar staff!! Wouldn't go there again. Childish attitude. Beyond belief really. Didn't stay for food. Asking for a drink was enough.
