We've cycled past the place a few times en route to The Bull Inn in Hockley but after a horrendous meal there and getting our money back we decided to give it a try! So glad we did!! Gorgeous food exceptionally helpful staff and on discovering the spacious beer garden at the rear we will definitely be coming back.

We were shown to a table which was tucked around a corner so very cosy. Menu was good although caters for... More

Great example of a typical English pub. Really good food as well at very reasonable prices. Small menu but still enough to suit all tastes.
