Called in for a quick pint and sat in the beer garden at the front. Nice pleasant way to spend half an hour, Friendly staff and a good choice of beer. Small gripe, no hot water in the toilets

Great place to sit outside with a pint plenty of seating and children welcome. Tried the steak and chips one afternoon, very nice and reasonably priced. Bar staff courteous and quick to serve. A lot cheaper and quieter than the pub next door.
