Really lovely interior. Chips were amazing! Sadly no options for a vegan as everything had meat or cheese on it. Hopefully they can think of something in the future to serve and I’d really like to return. Staff were really lovely too!

Great pub went there for a meal after booking. Very attentive staff and welcoming too. Food was very nice and good menu with lots to choose from. Not expensive and would def go back. Better meal, choice than lots of pubs in the surrounding area.
