A group of us visited here for a few drinks but ended up with just having one after having to wait over 20 minutes to get served. To be fair it was getting quite busy but we were acknowledged by 3 female members of staff while they were serving other people but then proceeded to serve other customers that had... More

A great pub with probably just over priced drinks. Nice atmosphere and everyone's friendly enough, but not enough staff working at busy times so you can be waiting for a long time To be served. Food was your average pub food that you wouldn't shout about but probably haven't a reason to complain either
