So good we visited twice! Struggled to find somewhere decent to eat locally so popped into this cosy little pub. On both occasions, service was excellent and the food was proper pub grub! Good sized portions and fair pricing, lovely local ales available.

Although the pub is busy, not everyone joins the quiz. Some are dining and some just listen but do not take part, not everyone pays a pound! I don't think we have ever had a quiz which has amounted to £45. We only seat around...More
