Not too busy, friendly locals wanting to chat. Drinks reasonably priced, loved the decor. We had burgers which were a bit dry and over-cooked but we would definitely visit this pub again for drinks and try something else on the menu.

We ate here on Saturday with a few friends, we had not booked a table in advance. The food is reasonably priced with many options on the menu. Everything seemed to be homemade and cooked really well. The pizzas are rustic and very good.
