“Really Good Pub Food”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Dont be deceived by the appearance of The Local. The food is excellent and reasonable. I opted for the Lamb Shank Pie which was awesome, others had a burger which was so large it amazed me that one person could eat it all. Then there was a chicken tgopped with cheese dish, again massive and enjoyed by two of our friends.
Shame that the owners (who I understand have another place within a few 100 yards) dont invest a little more in making this place more attractive. You really could walk by without giving it a second glance.

Tv showing sport, pool table etc, and I understand some themed nights are also on offer.
