A nice pub

A nice old fashioned pub with a touch of class! Takes you back in time a bit. I love this pub its my kind of place to have a light bite on an afternoon. Food not bad. Some members of staff are a bit stand offish though.

Simply the best bar Food I have ever had. Our Group of seven were served efficiently and warmly - nearly everyone had a different main dish and all thought it superb.
