Well upon arrival we were told to sit anywhere in the bar, we sat at one table and then moved to another because I did not feel comfortable. Anyway the service we received was good. The food arrived, we both ordered steak,... More

The booking was made by my son for his wife her parents and my husband and myself. This was not my cup of tea. 20 years ago, it was fine. It hasn't changed at all. It was great to take teenage lads in the 90's. I know it is an old old pub but they should do something about the... More
