Average pub grub, noting flash but good hearty food. If you your going to get pub food you won't be disappointed. Staff are always quick and cheerful. Used it a number of times for team dinners and lunches.

Portion sizes are very big. The food is tasty but isn't awe inspiring. If you want a good hearty feed and a good variety of choices then this is for you. The ale house loaf is big and tasty.
