Went here 2 nights on the run. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Quirky building with lots of character. Didn't no what to expect with the food, when it came out we were not disappointed. Loads on our plates, Kebabs were best around, Fish'o'licious burger was brilliant. Salad was tasty. reasonably priced and will be going here again !!!

Called in after a day out and the service was great. Easily accommodated a group of 8 with no prior notice. Would call again.

Had a lovely early dinner here after a long day of hiking in unusually sunny weather. Between us we had a fried Brie cheese starter and a mushroom and cream sauce starter, and the sausage trio and mash, and the chicken leek pie. All very nice. Nice service too. Cozy British pub atmosphere.
