Great pub with welcoming, friendly staff who were very helpful without being intrusive. Log burning fire creating a cosy atmosphere. The food was freshly cooked, hot and good with plenty of it, both dinner and breakfast. We will definitely return and have recommended it to friends and family.

We only had soups here for a snack lunch but they were home made and delicious. The place is smart with period features such as beams and panneling and has a good range of beers.

Had a really good time here, the chips, cheese and gravy were very good. The drinks were reasonably priced. The locals very friendly indeed and I enjoyed Sky Sports being on. Can't say much more than that because I'd consumed quite a lot of alcohol. Would certainly return when back in the area.

I'm amazed that this pub has been refurbed as the first thing I thought when I walked in was how tatty it is and how it could do with a makeover - dread to think what it looked like before. We arrived on a chilly wet early evening and there were a few locals propping up the bar so they... More
