“Great Pub”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Had a fabulous meal. The battered skate and chips were superb. Adnams Beer was as good as ever. The staff were friendly and professional. A great night out was had by everyone. Will be back
very soon.

“Good value and good meal”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Very nice pub where you are as happy to just have a drink as a meal. The food was good and well presented the steaks on steak night Thursday were very good value. This does what it says on the tin with no pretension and you would be more than happy to have a meal here anytime. Please clean the tables though as they were always sticky!

“Fab, yum, delicious”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Great place, nice décor, AMAZING fresh and tasty whole skate, very good Adnams beer. The skate was huge and came with chips and peas and was under £12. I never had such a tasty and fleshy skate before. Shame we were too full to have pudding

Highly recommended

“good pub grub”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We had lunch here on the bank holiday weekend and found it very enjoyable. Managed to get a table straight away, and although they said there would be a wait for the food (they were clearly busy) I think we only waited 20-30mins. Very tasty food, and a good selection of beers on tap (Adnams of course!). Service was good.
