We visited with four friends for an annual seasonal reunion. The menu was a bit underwhelming but the food when it came the food was well prepared and presented. Service was a bit patchy.

The meal was very good but a bit pricey, Scallops you only get 3 for starters fairly small & expensive. Pork belly excellent scallops 2 of them. Did not like parts of the trimmings quite pricey with the scallops.

Good family pub. Polite service and lovely environment. The specials are always worth a try. I had the seasonal salad and it was filling and healthy.
