We are house sitting for friends. This pub was 5 minutes walk away. We had the Yorkshire tapas which were great. Our young waiter will go far. A great local pub worth travelling to.

Visited here with friends for an evening meal and although they don't have an extensive menu and the choices for vegetarians are few, what you do get is well cooked, tasty and filling. It's a friendly place, with people having food or just a drink...More

The pictures are limited as the food was eaten so quickly! Full flavoured food cooked and presented very nicely on this Spanish evening. The service is very friendly and at the same time professional. Highly recommended.
