Lovely revamp! Still a good selection of beverages and the food was good and fairly priced! Would of being nice if they had better chips as this brought the rest of the meal down (steak) though the meat was perfectly cooked!

Description
A hidden gem, looks like an ordinary pub serving pub grub, but in fact it has a separate restaurant which serves wonderful food. Great choice, locally sourced produce, home made desserts. Very nicely presented plates and good helpings. Pleasant service.
