We had dinner here. I had their steak special, my wife had chicken pie and the little squirt had chicken nuggets. We all enjoyed our meals. Well priced and good with plenty of space.

It was Good Friday when we visited so was great to have no surcharge here. We both ordered the vegetarian pasta which arrived really quickly & was delicious. Served with garlic bread we both thought the meal was fantastic. No room for dessert and would definately recommend to others.

VEry busy, but once we found a table the staff were very attentive and the service was slow, but only because it is clearly a busy pub restaurant
