We came here after a day out at the discovery park, nice and hot summer's evening and this local pub was just the tonic to enjoy the evening. Good standard pub food, staff super friendly and a great atmosphere the place was really busy. very enjoyable evening.

Met for lunch with a friend, i have to say the selection of food was very good, i picked my default of a Burger and fries, presentation was great, and the food was very tasty. (The burger tasted like a burger should!) Service was quick and efficient and very friendly. Well worth a look
