4 friends for dinner on a Saturday. Surprisingly quiet, shame as nice enough pub with good ales. Food portions excellent, quality good too, just would benefit from a little more effort in presentation, but saying that friendly service, good value and we enjoyed the evening.

Visited this pub with friends and enjoyed it very much. The service was excellent, a very friendly young waiter. The food was served in a reasonable time and was delicious and well presented. We weren't rushed at all. Would recommend this pub.
