Great beer, affordable food and welcoming staff, what more do you need. The pay and display car park to the rear of the pub only cost £1 for 3 hours. Will definitely return again soon.

The roast dinner sharing platter is very good value at £22, was more than enough for me, my wife and my daughter. The service was very good especially as it was very busy.More
