This is a well patronised pub obviously very popular. There is a nice garden at the back for good weather. Traditional English food is home cooked and of excellent quality. The Landlord has been there many years and very friendly.

Ate here on a Thursday night, got the 2 for £14 deal with a friend. Food arrived quickly and portion sizes were very generous. Proper pub grub. Their chips were a particular highlight. Excellent value money.
