We visited this place twice whilst on a short break this week. Lovely food, reasonably priced. Lovely welcome from the lady who works there. Friendly staff. Kids are picky eaters and my two ate their lunch on both days. Great for free wi-fi also lol....More

Super little pub - no frills but does the job - the free wifi is a big plus . Toilets need an update.

Must have visited on a off night to say that the barman in a nearly empty pub was unfriendly would not be fair he had a total lack of interest in us as customers.that and no real ale on tap was so disappointing.

Just had a quick lunch, I was not expecting gourmet when I went in, but what I received truly surprised me. I had a very average, pre-cooked, frozen burger for 10 pounds with good chips and a small salad. My girlfriend just ordered onion rings...More
