Went there for lunch with family, there was a good variety of ales, the place was warm and welcoming and the history of the building being an old courthouse was fascinating! Our food was excellent and my steak and ale pie was the best!

You do not go for a meal here unless you are really hungry, you get very generous portions, two of my favourite dishes are cod and chips and the steak and ale pie and chips, and there's a good selection of real ales.

My mate and I called in recently and had the North Sea cod and lamb chops. Both were excellent as usual! I heard on the grapevine the present Landlords are leaving after 13 years! All I can say is I hope your successors are half...More
