My word had the cod and was most pleased with it. For desert, we had the crumble which was near to perfecte in. The staff is friendly and very... More

Had a really nice lamb hotpot, good service and good value. Nice pub, nice atmosphere. Worth a visit if only for the comedy chickens in the car park.
