We visited this pub as it was closest to the restaurant we were goin to. Football was on the TV and it was crammed with blokes staring at the TV's who would not move out of the way to get to the bar. Eventually got to the bar to be ignored for 5 mins as the bar staff chatted to... More

Very disappointed , soup starter was good but the roast wasn't . I don't expect to pay £12 for frozen roast potatoes and aunt Bessie's yorkshires . I see they are advertising for a chef , hope they get one soon and get back up to standard as we have always enjoyed the roast in the past

Went in here in a recommendation as they had Prosecco on tap, only to find it has been changed out to Frizzante. Decided to eat here and had their risotto. It was OK, not outstanding, but perfectly edible and satisfactory.

Only popped in for a drink in the past but stopped for dinner on this occasion. Nice selection of food, good quality and quantity and I can recommend the pies! A real surprise and one to stick on the reliable list, I'd recommend and revisit.

We hosted a private training event and found the staff service experience prior to the booking and on the evening first class. The drink selection is good, great gin choice and good prices, the happy hour was a bonus. Our guests enjoyed a two course own choice menu. All food cooked and presented well, the pies were rated very high... More

A popular spot in the old town. It serves standard pub food to a good quality. I would recommend the burger meal. A reasonable offering of ales.
