“Great place for lunch and a pint”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Was looking for a nice place to have lunch and a pint outside after. Can not express how happy I was to stop here. The food was tasty and for a good price and the choices of beer are great as well. We will definitely come back here.

“Fab staff and good honest food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Popped in here after hearing good reviews from the hotel where I was staying. Really friendly bar staff, good choice on the menu. Proper pub food the only word of warning is you need to be really hungry! Right opposite the train station. Will be coming back
