We went out for a few beers with our 2 young kids who were made very welcome, fab beer garden. Great service and great choice of beverages and snacks. A lovely log fire inside for the colder evenings. A great local for families. A traditional pub

Slowly but surely the restaurant and bar areas are being revamped and the locals are coming back. A lovely pub where you can socialise or chill out without the noise and interference you can get fom the other public houses and... More

Restaurant standard at pub prices Well done to... More
