“excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

We visited this cosy pub for a meal with a groupon voucher.
we had called in several times in the past for a drink and thought the menu looked good, a good variety of food and prices.
the starters smoked haddock in a brandy cream sauce was very tasty, as was the pate and the salad leaves perfectly dressed. there was also moules marinere, stilton and pear salad, garlic mushrooms in a brioche and soup on offer.
The pan fried red snapper with chorizo and wilted spinach was excellent, perfectly cooked and very tasty, served with freshly cooked vegetables and crispy potatoes. There was a good choice of meat and fish dishes including specials. everything piping hot and hot plates.
A choice of cheesecakes, roulades crumble or stick toffee pudding (excellent ) served with a choice of cream, custard or ice cream. Drinks were reasonably priced.
The room and bar was warm and comfortable nice décor and beams. The car park gets very full so make sure you park where you can get out easily

“Excellent - food and service”

Having eat here several times before, we decided to visit on boxing day for their breakfast offering. Excellent food cooked fresh. Service was fantastic and all very good value.
Highly Recommended.
