Visited on Saturday with my mum and sister, lovely decorated pub with comfortable seating. The food was good and really large portions, we couldn’t finish! Ordered chilli, lasagna and nachos with beef (which was enormous) good value for money for great pub grub!

Popped in to watch the football, it was very busy. Staff were on the ball though. Had lasagna and chicken Cajun pasta. Lasagna was tasty but the chicken Cajun pasta was absolutely delicious. Will be having that again. Portions are quite big.
