Friendly pub. My wife and I were holidaying nearby and both of us had the baked cod. Very nice. Portions adequate for most people. Pub is dog friendy.

We sat in a nook by a roaring fire - the pub was quiet but welcoming. The barman was friendly and attentive - and quite a laugh! Food - fish and chips with fresh fish - good quality - and cod with creamy sauce -...More
