Great food - lots of it for the price, good range of local beers and friendly service - definitely a must-visit if you're in the area.

“Nice place to relax and eat”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Coming from a large city it becomes very apparent a small town does things very differently. It is a much quieter affair but this was a great pub for me and my friends. We were a group of 13 guys but we were not treated like hooligans but instead very politely and helpful.

It's quite deceiving when you first walk in as it looks a little small but stretches further back and also an upstairs too.

The food was good value and large portions. We did have the Sunday Roast though. The service was excellent and all the barmaids were beautiful and lovely too.

“Decent pub food”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I felt that it was a little pricey, but the surroundings are very nice they've done a great job renovating the place, it is rather large however and a bit impersonal so I prefer the bar in the Allerdale (my hotel) next door, a nice quiet chat with a friendly bar person or even the rather exotic looking receptionist) is hard to beat.
