Came here for afternoon tea in the week. Never been here before even though we live local. What a little gem! Really nice inside and a nice atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and on the ball. Looks like they have a lot of bands/events going on. The afternoon tea was nice. Sandwiches were not anything fancy. Scones were one each... More

My lamb and mint pie washed down with a free glass of Merlot was excellent, and the other minced beef and onion with the free pint of lager was also highly rated.... More

We made the mistake of not booking. Turning up with England paying rugby and Liverpool playing. All said and done, they found us a table. They gave us a time limit but did not rush us at all.

The pub was heaving... definitely over it's... More
