Excellent quiz,let down by the state of bottles/glasses behind the bar. The majority were covered in dust. Poor bar keeping.

Yet another excellent addition yo the place. Now serving authentic Thai food on an evening cooked by Thai ppl. The foods excellent. Excellent value for money. Can be eaten inner or taken away. Highly recommended place to visit.

Such a shame management put non starter ideas above regulars of this Sunday night popular weekly event. If you want to feel valued as a customer don't come to this pub.

Lovely home cooked meal, the meat was full of flavour, sourced locally straight from the farm, portions large enough for a hearty appetite. Will definitely come here again having eaten here once :-)

Just called here my husband & grandaughter thought beer garden would be a good idea . We walked into the empty pub and asked if they were doing food she went away and came back20 minutes later and said they were. I ordered 2 hot beef sandwiches & a kids meal & a beer , water & cordial orange £26... More

New owners, menu and decor have made such a difference to this place. Have eaten there twice recently and always received a warm welcome. Food is delicious and menu well thought out...much nicer than a chain pub with 2 for 1 offers. Would benefit from a wine list but I would definitely recommend this and will return.
