The service was welcoming, efficient and attentive without being obtrusive. The food was very good, full of flavour, beautifully presented and excellent value for money. Following good starters, I had... More

My partner's sirloin just wasn't that great either. The burgers were fun for the children and we all enjoyed the chips. We were seated in the... More

Love this place. Visited here a lot since 2009. And it's only got better. Lovely atmosphere, food and staff. Stay at caravan site up the road and like to call in at least once over a weekend stay.

Called in again for a quiet pint with the wife but this time along with a few cold Guinness a Beef Madras went down a treat, hard to chose between the Fish n Chips and the Lamb shank to be honest so there's always another time... top,friendly staff, very very clean.

Everything from the décor, the courteous and efficient staff and food to die for, this was probably one of the best places I've eaten in this country.

A delightful meal with friends in a warm, cosy atmosphere and really good food. We were reccomended to try the Dog and Gun and were not disappointed. There is a good choice on the menu and a specials board. All of us really enjoyed the meal.

Called in for lunch a few minutes after they were due to stop taking orders and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The pub has recently been refurbished and is very welcoming. We had a delicious lunch, starters and mains. The locals were so friendly, we will definitely call in again when back in the area.
