We enjoyed nice food and drink in a lively and chique setting. Nice decor and friendly staff. It was very dog friendly with water bowls on the floor and several furry visitors.

Friendly local pub serving great food everyday. Family friendly and well behaved dogs more than welcome. We have a huge range of beers, spirits, premium spirits and soft drinks and of course we serve great coffee. We have the best beer garden in town overlooking the river and the meadows car park.
