“Quality food and excellant value”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Great looking pub with a seperate area to the left as you enter set aside for eating which is a nice touch. As it was a saturday we tried the special which was 2 steaks and a bottle of wine for £20. Steaks really well cooked to our liking and probably one of the best value meals we have had in ages. Comes with fries, mushrooms,tomatoe and a very well dressed little salad (tasty in its own right). If it was our local we would definately visit more often.

The puddings are worth trying if you have room, homemade date and walnut cake with a freshly made toffee and almond sauce. Very light, tasty and extremely well presented. Kitchen team clearly know what they are doing.

Service was polite and attentive, overall a very good evening.
