I look forward to going back soon again. For private functions there is a private snug at the back for 30 or so people. Lovely open fires in the winter, children's... More

The curry provided was very tasty and the staff were extremely helpful. A microphone was supplied for our use on the night and a chair was found for everyone. A... More

The steak I had was cooked really badly and was not of great quality and frankly I left really rather disappointed. Shame because it is a nice place to relax and eat but the food this... More
