Visit this restaurant quite often, lovely pub. Very inviting and the refurb has made it look and feel more cosy inside. Dog friendly so perfect for bringing the pooch up in the summer as it has a lovely beer garden.

Looks fab with the new refurbish. A great opportunity to get some new locals who are looking for a regular pub to visit....like us! Just hope that the tables will now get cleared and the kitchen can support the look of the place.

The time we visited it was under par, both the food and service so all I can say is if I am ever in the vicinity of this establishment is giving it a wide berth!
