The only disappointment about the Sunday roast is not being able to eat it all. It is an excellent meal and great value. Eight different veg and good quality meat accompanied by really tasty gravy. I would definitely recommend the roast to friends.

Great place again after a long time being run down. Great honest pub grub and hard working traditional landlord and landlady. Long may they continue. Good for family's, food, beer, gatherings, pool, darts, etc etc.
