After watching the rugby we decided to pop in for a quick drink before going for a meal. After watching a couple of meals being brought out the kitchen we decided eat here. What a great choice we made. My partner had the garlic chicken and I had the curry, both meals were freshly cooked, tasty and excellant value for money (although not on the meal deal menu). The refit is great, gone are the miniscule toilets, which have now been taken out and this is where the entrance to the pub is. Although the place has been completly redecorated, it has not lost any of its character. An excellant refurbishment with good food as well. The bar can get busy at the weekends, but there is a separate restaurant to eat in, if required. As being local, we have never tried the rooms, but if, as good as the refurbishment, would get the thumbs up from us.
