Four of us have been to this pub/restaurant on 3 occasions. No complaints at all. The food is reaching a high standard and the service is lovely. Great beer too in a warm friendly atmosphere.

A last minute lunch for a quick bite, lovely fresh made sandwich, the fries and onion rings were a great share on a cold Sunday afternoon. Staff really good and attentive. Good value for money and nice surroundings.
