Atmospheric Pub where we had a traditional Sunday lunch of very good quality and reasonably priced. Warm, friendly & efficient service. It’s maybe not a ‘special occasion’ venue but, based on our experience of some of the other local establishments, it was the best food & service (and that included a ‘special occasion’ meal at The Royal Hotel)!

Friendly pub with great atmosphere. Booked table for 12 and we all had selection of meals from the menu and specials board.
It was Boxing day and very busy but our meals were perfect .Large portions of delicious hot food and all allergies catered for too.
You could see they were all home cooked and we all were totally happy and contented. Such a reasonable price too.
Thank you so much.

We were very impressed, from the warm welcome to the food and drinks.
We went on a Tuesday evening and there was a great atmosphere with a good number of people in. Centrally situated, a short walk from the high street. Highly recommend!

We were a large group of adults and a number of dogs. We were welcomed by friendly and efficient staff and people and the dogs served with a smile. We had Sunday roast and a desert which was excellent and very good value. Would definitely go back again.
