Had a couple of pints and a bar snack here. Prices good, food good, bar lady -July(?) - very friendly and cheerful. This pub also has a large car-park and tubs to rinse your boots off before entering -I think that's what they were for!

This is a superb place, just wrote a similar review but wrong section. I cannot fault the place and the food they prepared at short notice was excellent especially after a long day on the moors. Good place to chill and socialise.
