It may not be the swankiest restaurant in town but the food is delicious, it arrives quickly and it does not break the bank.

We loved this pub, wish it was on our own doorstep! Quaint, homely and comfortable 'boozer'. Lovely food, to die for. Both drinks and food extremely reasonable. A must visit if in the area.

Nice menu with good choices, all freshly made, nice friendly staff who don't treat you like you have 3 eye's because you speak differently, full of locals who volunteer to make room for you at their table, really well cooked and all at a great price

We ate out in the area every night for five nights and the Contented Sole was one of our favourites over all. Very nice, thank you!
