We had brunch here today. The food was amazing, I had the Fish&Chips and my friend the Vegetarian Chili. Both tasted absolutely amazing! The staff was really friendly and all by all was a great experience!

Tremendous pub with and excellent range of beers and wines. Comfortable and cosy areas to eat and drink in. A terrific selection of food and fish available. Good fire in the evening to help you savour the full surroundings.
