Had breakfast here and a good English breakfast it was. The small one was very generous and the full one enormous. It comes with tea or coffee included. It was a good start to the day.

Two BIG breakfasts, a tea and a coffee for £12 - what more can you say! Great value (as long as you can stomach watching people drinking pints of lager at 10 in the morning :-) ) The photo at the top says it all - 2 bacon, 2 sausages, 2 has browns, 2 eggs, black pudding, baked beans, mushrooms,...

I treated two friends for lunch here today (25.10.16). A friendly welcome and got some drinks. One friend had the All Day Breakfast, the other had a Jacket Potato with cheese and beans, whilst I had the small veggie breakfast. Why I had onion rings for a 'breakfast' I've no idea! I would have preferred some fried potato or bubble'n'squeak!... More

If you want a friendly, establishment to visit this is the place to go. We called in for lunch and we're very pleased with the menu choices. Very reasonably priced, very clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely go back.

popped in for a pint and some pub food. the locals present were friendly. one fellow was celebrating his birthday so there were many toasts and some good-natured ribbing. I had a very tasty cheeseburger that was seasoned just right, my wife enjoyed the pork pie.

Here's a decent pub with no airs or graces. The beer is good, the prices are reasonable, and the food looks solid and hearty (we didn't eat). Good old-fashioned noisy atmosphere. Loved it.
