Visited for a meal at the weekend, staff not terribly welcoming at the bar but a nice young waitress at our table. Small starters and main meal of fish and burger and chips o.k. The chips were small and the meal wasn't particularly well presented...More

Lovely food, friendly service. Burgers and chips, battered squid, tuna steak cooked to perfection. Above average pub food, I'd say. All to a very high standard and delicious. Nice pint of hoppy beer too. Extra points for sunshine in the beer garden, no minus points...More

Awful rude staff, not accommodating at all. Should rename fish and chips as air and batter. Would not recommend!

Arrived soaking wet with dog on Bank holiday Sunday. The place was full and busy but all staff were very welcoming and friendly. The Roast Beef Sunday lunch was fantastic- best I've had in years.
