Had lunch here, plenty to choose from, made to order so came out hot and fresh, Helen who served us most of the day/evening was lovely. Eaten here on many occasions and has always been a pleasant meal.

Really happy we found this little gem. The staff were friendly, beer fine, and the food was every bit as good as we hoped. Nice atmosphere. Well with a visit if you're in this part of the world.

It's been a couple of years since we've been in this pub, and longer since we've eaten there. We thought the food was excellent, as were the staff. Beer not bad either. We're intending taking our wives next time, the ultimate accolade!

We didn't book a table midweek and there was lots of room. On their advertising I have seen somewhere that is says drop-ins welcome so maybe you will be okay.
