Lovely Sunday roast, had the veggie option and it was very nice,great atmosphere as well and loved the fact that the place is dog friendly :D The only But I would say is that you have to order the food at the bar but that was not an issue for us. I would recommend this pub to friends and family

Great to come here with friends for a glass of wine. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the two ladies behind the bar were very friendly and genuine. Didn't try the food but it smelt lovely. Definitely will be returning soon!

Could not get a more friendly dog environment than this pub. A lovely American (i think) member of staff particularily stands out for customer service. This is a place that makes great coffee the ideal stop when half way round the walk
