Quick stop before running for the train for food and it was surprisingly good. One ordered a burger, the other a sausage and mash. Recommend trying it.

From the moment we stepped inside the atmosphere was very friendly. This pub is a gem. We ate fish and chips which were freshly cooked and served with a smile. It was indeed very quiet but that for us was a bonus as we were...More
