Popped in for a quick drink when passing and found a lovely little historic pub with all the trimmings. Lovely food was being served and the beers and ales made a change from the 'norm'. Well worth a visit .

A varied menu but decided on the beer batter haddock 'posh' chips and mushy peas. Very tasty, lovely light batter. Good service. The three desserts we had were really good too. Will visit again.

I definitely would suggest booking as Sunday can be a busy day. Contact pub. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
