Visited with friends after being away a few years - the reaction when I asked for my pint to be filled to the pint mark said it all. This place is disappointing.

Been for food a few times over the past year, both lunch and evening meal which is very reasonably priced. There is a good atmosphere with friendly and efficient staff and all very relaxed. Get a table and order at the bar, favourites of ours are the fish, steak pie and burgers!
