Pub is tired, tatty and appears unkempt. Further put off by customers vaping at the bar. The bar staff were either absent or struggling to work the till. That said the ale was well kept if a little over priced. Not minded to return, despite...More

went today, having enjoyed previous meals plus well kept beer. Something has happened - the roast lunch is now AWESOME. I went for the beef, but was overwhelmed with the veg. Hard to imagine a better sunday lunch. Also great value
