What a great find! Wonderful friendly pub under new ownership. Fantastic food and the Chef even offered to make me a fresh Mushroom soup, which was delicious. Highly recommend to visitors.

Perhaps they need a few weeks to get their act together but the Neal we had last night (Saturday) took over an hour and a half before it arrived and then it was truly awful. Hope things improve answer used to really like going there.

First visit and the food was super. Home cooked and prepared fresh. The landlord was friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend a visit although be prepared to wait for your food better the wait than boil in the bag. Will return again soon.
