Visited here on a Sunday, lots of tables reserved but staff said ok to sit there as long as we were gone by the reservation time. Lovely Sunday dinner, generous portion of meat and lovely traditional gravy.

Always a good pint in here, friendly locals. It has an awesome carvery which is every Sunday. Good pub for watching the footy too. Can't wait to visit again.

Nice traditional pub. Thought the carvery would be a nice change - it wasn't. Poor quality meat (and over cooked) and tasteless veg. The choices were beef turkey and gammon. I asked for some cranberry sauce as they had horseradish and mint (?) Out. It...More
