This time everything was excellent, we had the mixed meat sharing starter between 3 which was great and we then had traditional Sunday lunch which was excellent. We had our dog with us, who is well behaved and he was... More

This pub/restaurant has an extensive menu, and everything we had eating here on tow visits was excellent. The chef is very expert at sauces - packed full of flavour, and seasoned just right. The crab sauce with the Huss in butter beans with prawns was an excellent combination, with just the right amount of saffron to add an extra layer... More
