booked a table for 4 for the Thursday steak night. 2 steak meals AND a bottle of house wine for under £25 The steak was perfect for all of us plus the trimmings and the wine was lovely.Atmosphere was just right and plenty of room....DEFINITELY GOING BACK. pre book so as not to be disappointed. They do other meal deals on different nights which if this is anything to go buy will satisfy one and all and the lunch deal also looks excellent valueMore

Lovely friendly welcome and absolutely delicious food. Delight to be greeted with a menu that has a number of homemade dishes which aren't on every other pub menu in the country. Very pleasurable hour spent and we'll definitely be back
