I just love this pub, it has a great atmosphere and a good area outside to sit and enjoy a meal or a drink and safely seat your dogs as well! Been here many times now and never disappointed. The Ice cream Sundae is spectacular!!

Thank you Brian and glad that you enjoyed your visit. The trains are not that frequent during the day, maybe one per hour but if you were here on a Saturday you mightn't have seen any owing to the strikes. Kind regards - Ed
