It's so good that I visit for lunch twice a week. It's a lovely pub with a garden that catches the sun perfectly when it shines. The food is excellent and the service is great.

Thank you for your feedback. For each portion, we do measure the meat. As for the pricing, £8.95 for a main course is very reasonable for this area.

I’m sorry to hear that my taste in glassware offended you so much. The recycled jam jars are our quirky and eco-friendly way of offering customers FREE cucumber water. As for the food and staff, using the term ‘poor’ repeatedly does not help me to...More
