The portions were great and the taste, some... More

We have eaten and drank her for years on and off but I must say today exceeded the normal standard which is very high. The fish arrived and to say it filled the plate leaving very little room for the chips and peas is not an exaggeration. The fish filled the beautiful batter case and was really moist and perfectly...

I've been here several times however, this was the 1st time to eat. As usual a good selection of real ales and cider. Food was hearty and tasty. Laverbread and cockles to start and faggots for mains. You'll not go hungry!! Excellent & freindly service in a busy pub filled with locals. I will be back.
