Saw this pub, went in and had a lovely lunch. Bar staff and waitresses were very friendly. The choice on the menu was excellent for lunchtime. So glad we found it, will be back when next in the area.

A lovely pub clean friendly with good beer and lovely traditional pub food. We had burgers which where great and some lovely liver and bacon. Better than a gastro pub.

As we are local we were very interested to see what the new management had done with the Gun since they took over a couple of weeks ago and we have to say that the future looks promising. In these days of non-pubs let's say,...More
