Been there a few times, bar staff always make you feel very welcome and are always very friendly. Went late on a Sunday afternoon and had a risotto, my go to meal of choice, and it's safe to say this is one of the best I have ever had. My other half had the roast and couldn't decide which meat...

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.

Great food, great beer. Good service. 5 stars. I went there with my wife and four children (ages 14 to 20). The food was excellent - esp. The gluten free options. Highly recommended.

this place offered great food in a lovely pub. staff were very friendly and attentive. only downside was we had checked the menu before booking a table to find out the prices were different when we arrived as apparently the online prices were incorrect .

Thank John W
