We hadn't been to this, fairly local, place for years then called in by chance. Great atmosphere, plenty of people but didn't feel crowded. Staff very friendly, good menu choices, even had a veggie option on the specials board! The food was excellent if a little too much, not that we left any mind you. Will definitely add this to our list of places to bring our friends to when staying with us. Excellent value for money hasn't gone the way of so many pubs lately.
