We have eaten there twice now with family members and cannot fault anything. The second time I booked on line which was great. Good choice of food on menu and prices reasonable.

Food was okay, but I would say overpriced for quality. Staff again were okay, but didn't find them particularly friendly. Pub is run of the mill.

No, had to back into a space, that's fine but we were on a busy main road. Not easy. I think there were 6 parking bays. There was notice of parking, I think it said next door.
