Not a bad pub by any means. It just feels neglected. We came here first, about eight years ago. The food then was good, and quite cheap. It seems that the pub has been taken over by a chain. And now the food is of...More

Nice little pub, food was enjoyable. Choose the standard carvery and dessert option for £13.95, really nice selection of desserts. If there was any critique, for me they veg was over seasoned, too much pepper. Overall very enjoyable.More

I'm sure it won't be a problem. It's always a good idea to book as Friday nights are fish night and we can get busy. However, we will always do our very best to find you a suitable table. Look forward to seeing you.
