My apologies Paul. The pub doesn't open on Mondays at the moment, and I forgot to update the website to reflect that. I've now rectified this, and once again, my apologies for the inconvenience.

There is only one menu on the web site and it's limited thank goodness. The food is prepared fresh so no poly bagged micro waved rubbish.
