Right next to the station, couple of real ales on. Turned up just after they stopped serving lunch but they still served me...and my friend 20 minutes later. Had the Goan curry off their specials board and it was absolutely superb.

Disappointed that no longer serve hand cut chips. This used to be unique to the Queens Arms and was a reason to choose above other places. Went one evening in November with a group of friends and although the food was good we missed the...More
