I love the Seabass - but the Grumpy Mole pies are a delight. Steak is very popular I haven't had that but there are always a lot of people enjoying it. My Favourite pudding is the Sticky Toffee with Custard. But my friend likes the apple strudel with custard.

Food was average at best Had fish and chips Frozen chips, bought in tartare sauce and tinned mushy peas. Basic pub food at relatively high prices for standard grub. Service great, I can see why it has good reviews for that.

Have had half a dozen meals prior to last night, always had a great meal and thought this would be a ideal place to hold the party. Was not disappointed, 20 people in party, with menus previously advised, all food came out together and piping hot. There were a couple of small mix ups but quickly resolved. All had 3... More
