Our visit was based on other Trip Advisor reviews as there isn't much information on line regarding menus, prices etc. Suffice to say we agree with the top ratings given and were very impressed with all aspects.

As a local I come here more often than any other pub, the cleanliness is one of the main reasons. I've tried a couple of meals here as well, finger-licking goodness every time! Compliments to the chef! Also I've been in when they have Jam nights as well, with the new stage and new sound system it's just perfect. The... More
