A good place to visit for its surroundings, food, and drinks. A nice relaxing atmosphere to eat, drink, and chat after a good day visiting the local sights. Beer was inexpensive, and the Scampi, and Chips, and Steak Pie with Mustard, Veg, and mash tasty.

Hi, Yes they do accept reservations, but I’m not sure how busy it would be on a Monday night in August. All I can say is that we thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday lunches. Hope that you also get to experience it.

No idea I'm afraid. I suggest you give the pub a quick call directly. Would be a lovely venue for it I'm sure.
