Staying at HPB apartments nearby and visited twice for food as a family of five. The first time the food was lovely. Obviously all home made, fabulous value for money and a really warm welcome from staff & owners (even with a tearful toddler with us!). We enjoyed it so much we made a point of going back and were delighted to find they were holding a 'Chinese night' where you could eat in or have a takeaway. The food was again fabulous, the beer cold, the welcome warm and the price unbeatable.
The whole family agreed we wished we lived nearer as this would definitely be our new local!!

Met up with people staying at HPB for a weekday meal out---not expecting anything special. Really enjoyed our food, good value, friendly service in a busy family-run pub. Would eat out more frequently during the week, if there were more places like this. Deserves to succeed. Shame it's too far for us to visit regularly.

I attended the pub quiz evening with some friends recently. We all enjoyed the generous portions of home cooked food and the real ales on offer, and will certainly be back for more.

Great value for money too.

The owners were really friendly to talk to, which rounded off a very pleasant evening.

This is a crowded, busy little pub and the menu is what you would expect for a non-gastro pub, but they cook it very well, are generous, and serve you well too.
