Hats off to the chef! We called in for our tea for a cheap pub tea and it definitely delivered! The menu has all the classics and the specials offered something bit more up market but delicious and the same price as the main menu....More

I've given an average score for this pub as the tables were quite sticky which nearly put me off however the food is great.

I’ve been here a few times and never once have I had a bad meal. The braised steak is lovely. The lamb shank is even better. I highly recommend it.

Only given a 4 due to the appearance of the place not the food. The food is absolutely gorgeous and home made. Portion sizes are big but so worth the money! Best pub food I've had, better than chained pubs!
