Best Pub food in Rotherham by far. Nice comfortable atmosphere with comfortable seating. Not over expensive and value for money. Also has a fairly good variety of beer and lagers. Could do with a German lager adding.

Called with friends after we'd been for a walk, so we were hungry and thirsty!! We had three excellent meals, piping hot, very nicely presented and most reasonably priced. Staff were attentive, especially the very young lady who cleared outperform glasses. Will definitely call again!
