Friendly and helpful bar staff, lovely and clean pub. Spicy chicken wings were delicious. Generous baby bowl and it even had some broccoli in it!

Nicely done pub - friendly and casual (the restaurant next door is quieter and felt more formal), busy (but can eat at the bar if need be), good range of food and drinks menu (e.g. various kinds of burger). Hearty pub fare, large portions.
