This is a good, well run pub. It serves a good selection of real ales (which the barman was happy to let me sample before opting to buy) as well as the usual lagers and beers available at most pubs. The staff were very friendly and efficient and it was generally clean.
I had a burger which was OK for the price paid. However, one personal gripe of mine is the current trend for serving food on anything but plates. I know that the TV chef's like to do it to present on the telly, but this is a pub!!! The burger came on a chopping board (it's called a chopping board for a reason!) with a wooden sewer through it. The chips came in a little tin bucket (buckets are for carrying water) so I deposited them on the (cold) chopping board so that I could access them with my knife and fork and also sprinkle salt evenly over them. The bucket was discarded - what a waste of time. But the food was nice and well prepared and nobody in my party had any complaints. (they all think I'm mad for objecting to food being served on chopping boards).
In general though this is a very warm and welcoming pub, which is also dog friendly, so feel free to bring your pooch.
