Was recommended this pub by a friend for Sunday dinner and I have to say for the money it is excellent value and extremely tasty. The staff are always pleasant and the pub always has a nice welcoming feel especially when the open fire going.

A lovely old pub with delicious food, I had liver and bacon, which was absolutely lovely, my partner had sausage and mash in a huge Yorkshire pud. Very generous portions, lovely home cooked food! I also had chocolate fondant pudding with cream. Would recommend highly!
