An unplanned Sunday lunch at real treat . The pub was buzzing, families, couples, dogs 🐶 and babies. All very homely. Could chose 2 or 3 course for a set price . See attached a few pictures. Would visit again and would recommend..

Went for Christmas meal on a Sunday lunchtime with family. Good food, decent portions and value for money. The staff were a little busy and rushed. The tables were very close together so it wasn't very private and you had to push past people to...More
