Excellent meal 2 for £12 at lunch great value. Very accommodating as we had two babies two toddlers with us and needed extra plates, hot water etc. Duck hash was lush and crumble soooo good!

Family run excellent pub and restaurant. With comprehensive and exciting menu. Small rooms available for group meals. Plenty of parking. Amazing views from carpark over the estuary to the docks. Pleasant atmosphere and efficient service. Outdoor area under trees amazing for the summer.

Hi! We are not a Mitchell & Butlers pub so I'm afraid we do not accept M&B Gift Cards.
