Bar staff couldn't do enough for you very friendly make the pub worth a visit!! Only place serving food all day and where you seemingly dont need to make a reservation. Everywhere else just replied "full all evening". Reasonably price nice enough food and plenty of it.

Excellent food all round, worth a visit, the starter of mini ribs is really worth ordering, one of the best we have ever had.

We arrived on a very busy saturday night and they had run out of nearly all the specials. There isn't a huge range of beers and by Wednesday when we went back they had run out of all the ales so had to resort to drinking Fosters! However the big selling point for this pub is the young bar man who apart from being good at his job was funny, informative and actually worth just going to this pub to chat with him. There were only a few of us in the bar but he got everyone chatting and was doing his best to sell tickets for the "ladies pamper evening". The fact that we bumped into him at another of the pubs on his evening off was funny but i guess in such a small place your options are limited. Food was excellent but just let down on the ale choices.
