My family and I visited this venue in Sept this year. The service was excellent: friendly staff and excellent food choice. It was a mid-week day, very busy. I ordered a steak from the specials board: excellent quality and price

Good Pub Food and very good value for money. 8oz rump steak £7.50 and steak and ale pie for £6.50, both served with more chips than you can eat! Would recommend trying if in the area.
