Dropped in without booking on a Sunday lunchtime. Easy to find, decent size car park. Welcoming atmosphere and lovely warm stove and venue. Nice meal, pleasantly served without delay . Good range of proper beers, will return.

All the staff were friendly, helpful and provided a good service. It is a charming country pub with friendly locals at the bar or separate rooms... More

Seafood I believe is a speciality here and it's great! I've sampled a fair amount of the menu and I've never been disappointed. Great food and portion sizes mean you won't leave there feeling hungry. Very helpful and polite staff.

This was our first time to this establishment, and we were pleasantly surprised. A spacious car park, although on a sharp bend of a relatively fast road needs care entering or exiting. We had booked ahead (the day before) and there were still one or two tables available on the day, but lots of tables already reserved. As stated on... More

I have passed this pub for over 40 years and never been I in it. The sea food had been recommended and it didn't disappoint. We had two platters, one hot of sardines, King prawns, and chilli prawns and another cold of whole, peeled prawns and salmon. All served with salad, bread and chips. An excellent meal which could have... More

Friendly staff, great roast lunches. Booked a table for nine and was really impressed with the friendly staff which looked after us extremely well. Food was very good, we had three different roasts and children's meals, all were very good. Decent selection of vegetables too.

Thank Matthew C
