From the moment you enter this pub the atmosphere is warm and friendly, very well laid out; the whiskey display also makes for a good centre piece.
The staff are warm and friendly, the service was speedy and the food excellent. One thing I liked was the acceptance of the staff to 'alter' items on the menu to cater for my picky requirements. For example I wanted the Brie and cranberry baguette but I wanted bacon adding to this which was no problem at all.
The other real bonus for me is the fact dogs are allowed in too!!! Other establishments should really learn from this and remove the 'No dogs except guide dogs' stickers which festoon too many places in the UK. The advantage here is that I can walk my hound on one of the many local walks before dropping in on my way home for a snack and drink without having to leave my hound in the car.
Many thanks for an excellent visit, see you again soon Mash Tun.
