We came here on a lunchtime, midweek for lunch as a couple. Food was ok. Car park accross the road. Easy to get to on the number 21 bus route. Clean pub and friendly staff. Would come again. Reasonable priced meals.

Been here several times, the last one being for my Mams wake. The staff are very friendly and warm. The beer cold. They serve carling black label amongst others. Would recommend for food too.
