This pub has steadily improved over the last ten years - especially so since the current landlord arrived with his wife and family. The place has gone from a blokes-only sort of pub to the sort of place where 'ladies who lunch' of mature years feel happy. It has plenty of attraction still for the thirsty workers popping in for a pint, but it has spread its appeal to include trendy young girls, family groups and pensioners (who have a special menu during the middle of the day).
When it is at its busiest it may not be the place for speedy service - but at quieter times the staff are very efficient and attentive. We deliberately arrive outside the rush hour and have had good experiences of the food (usually sticking to pub standard fare such as gammon and chips or jacket potato with beans and bacon).
