Brilliant for a Sunday Roast. Loads of meat and veg. Fantastic Thai as well. Typical British pub. Locals friendly, staff are good. Ok decor maybe wanting a bit, but overall would recommend this pub.

We have just had the most amazing meal here. We booked a table for 11 and were really impressed not only for the food but also for the speed it was prepared and the really friendly and accommodating staff. Vegetables were beautifully cooked and al dente and the rest of the food faultless. We will be certainly be back!
