Usual Beehive, beer still a little average but food is still good. Staff friendly and welcoming. Service was good without being over bearing. Will be going again soon.

Went with wife and 85 year old father. Food generally good, average pub prices for this establishment. Parking ok, bit off the beaten track in countryside but that suits us. Two things that were disappointing, admittedly it was Sunday afternoon but service was really poor,...More
