Lovely staff and excellent food. The Sunday roasts are to die for with delicious trimmings, and all food is delicious. Friendly atmosphere in a lovely pub, warm and cosy in the colder months and a lovely outdoor garden and seating area for the warmer months....More

Busy and friendly establishment. Claire and her team work very hard at delivering good quality food in a friendly welcoming environment. Saturday night entertainment particularly good and helped to make our weekend very special. Thoroughly recommend.
