Lovely original pub with a Sunday lunch that was reasonably priced, that we didn’t have to wait too long for and which was yummy, the added extra of dauphinois potatoes just made it a Sunday dinner plus! Friendly too. Worth a visit!

nice array of typical pub grub in a traditional pub setting. Place order at the bar and they bring food out pretty quick. Quietish. Also outdoor seating available. Fish and chips recommended!

Good pub with good range of drinks available. Nice pub grub menu, and plenty of space within. Need to hire more staff to ensure running of floor is more efficient, however that is an easy fix.

Called in at 8.20 pm to be told kitchens not doing any more meals, book a table for tomorrow. The restaurant was half full and attitude of the staff was appalling.They don't deserve any business treating people in such an off hand and agressive manner.

Sorry only found this email this morning so I hope you were successful in the booking. We visited early September, both Saturday & Sunday. We didn’t mind waiting for the meals as they were well worth it. Festive wishes Dawn
