Nicest looking pie I'd ever been presented! Could do with a tad less fat and the vegetables were nuked! Gravy very good. Chips great! We enjoyed it. It's definitely a pub to enjoy in the winter when I think it's ambience shines through.

Great pub, friendly staff. Food very good. Had a chicken pie - which looked and tasted excellent. Plenty of food on plate and proper chips. Fish pie highly recommended . Good selection on the menu. Would definitely go again and recommend it.

On a recent visit, the deep-fried crispy whitebait were as good as we have ever had, while the beef and ale pie was memorable for the outstanding quality of the pastry and gravy. Generous portions of properly al dente vegetables. Friendly service.
