Thank you for your kind response. We are very happy that you enjoyed your sandwiches. I will be having a word with the guys about smiling, hopefully it was just a bad day for the server.

Just got back from Sunday lunch here and the veggie roast was to die for. Followed by the Vintage Ale Sticky Toffee pudding with salted caramel ice cream. Great service and dog friendly too. Love it!

Love this place. Highly recomend. Sunday roast is great or just a pint in the evening.. Friendly regulars make you feel welcome. Great quality food and a good range of drinks. Pints are on the expensive side, but it is made up with great ambiance.
