We were more than happy with the food and the service was above and beyond. The landlord and staff were really friendly, and the food was enjoyably hearty. They had separate menus for Vegetarian, Fish, and Meat dishes, which was great for us.

Nothing fussy but a good standard fare that you want from a pub. Nice beers, warm and clean, friendly staff. Order at the bar find a seat and food turns up without much delay. Oldish style pub with parking to front which can get busy.

It's a very old building and so is very difficult to manoeuvre around. The staff are very friendly so I'm sure they'll be pleased to answer your questions if you call them
