I like this pub its always lively but sort out the Thugs that are supposedly Door Staff as they think they own the gaff and stomp around and basically get on your nerves as for the Pub great!!!

The day clouded over so we headed for the nearest attractive pub. A choice of two; this and the nearby Irish pub called Murphy's. Fortunately we made an excellent choice. It's very olde-worlde with low ceilings and sturdy wooden beams, cosy but commodious with plenty of corners and nooks in which to enjoy food and drink. Doubtless it's one of... More

Go there regular on my many visits to the Sealawn B&B next door. Very busy Pub so says a lot. Everyone from doormen to B/staff polite folk. Beer 'aint cheap, but the bands have to be paid for.

Came in for the Sunday Lunch and left rather disappointed. Got quite small portions of meat, the gammon had great crackling but the rest was quite salty, the turkey was nicer but quite small serving. Veg was okay but nothing special and I really didn't like the red cabbage with raisins or the hard Yorkshire pud. Not great value for... More

We all had a great night, everyone enjoyed their food. The staff were excellent, nothing too much trouble. We are in agreement that we'll be back next year as it was such a good atmosphere. Thank you for a good night.

End to a great night last night with live music at the Spinning wheel. The band were excellent - good room for dancing and still room to sit and have a drink
