We stopped off for lunch here whilst walking between the two museums. It is a traditional, local pub that serves good pub food, well cooked at excellent prices. It was more than we could eat. Bar staff are friendly and helpful. Recommended.

Had time for a spot of lunch with my future best man. Former regular haunt, good drinks but a little expensive, food very good as always.
