Popped inhere while driving through the town en-route to Chester. Lovely quirky old building and a good selection of different foods - not your usual pub food. Sharing platter was excellent and friendly staff

Pleasant, dog friendly outdoor area with sufficient cover if it's sunny. The Sunday lunch was delicious, well presented and just the right portion size. The staff were very friendly and the service was prompt and polite. I will definitely visit again.

We liked this pub. It had a small but cosy outside area which was ideal in the sun. Of all the pubs, this had the best kept beer, absolutely crystal clear. Excellent
