Still serving very short measure and wasn't asked if I wanted my 3/4 pint topped up to the legal measure.

Great pub with friendly service, warm cosy atmosphere and a bit cheaper than the Blundell, just down the road. Food not quite as good as the Bllundell but staple british pub grub and delicious deserts.

This used to be a regular favourite for drinks and food but the service on our last visit very poor. Staff were more interested in continuing conversations than serving.

Walked in at 12.30 today Tuesday. Two ladies behind the bar, one of them eating dinner. Had to wait a while to be served. Ordered the mince and onion pie. The pie had literally two spoonfuls of filling. £7.99 it was a joke. My sons...More

We do try and keep Dogs in the bar area, and it does state on the entrance that we are a dog friendly pub, unfortunately this will not be changing anytime soon, Kind Regards David Thomas GM
