Not everyone can afford to be spending £20 on a steak when you are trying to save money! This pub offers steaks for around £7/£8 and you can still order your *peppercorn* sauces and I had sweet potato chips with my meal! They have updated the menu in recent months, and having these options available has really improved the choice... More

First choice of drink ran out which set the tone for the visit. Food arrived, two out of three were very disappointing. On the two roast dinners, there was more fat than meat and the gravy was virtually non existent. The puddings were better, although they forgot to put any Baileys in the Baileys sundae
