The pub does look a bit unloved from the outside...but inside the atmosphere is great. Food is good...and service is friendly! Worth a visit.

A decent pub with some reasonable menu choices the food is fairly standard pub fare and reasonably priced, it’s a decent place to eat we would come back but won’t become a regular place to eat. Staff were fairly friendly and service was ok
