A local place for sure, given the food quality and prices. Large portions. The smoked salmon pasta was delicious, the lamb shank special was excellent. Too full to try the tempting desserts!

We went for dinner and a cocktail. Casual funky bar with a varied menu and delicious food. If you go you must try the grilled fish. Staff is friendly and attentive. Loved it. They also had A pool table and ping-pong. TV played MTV

Darts, pool, table tennis! and Sky Sports gives you the flavour of this local pub. Good honest pub grub served anywhere you want to sit, tables, sofas, stools, outside, at the bar. Very good fish burger and far too many chips. Did the job.

Steak and fries and delicious fresh turbot and fries were really well cooked. Very friendly team here. Decor not inspiring but pool table, dartboard, jukebox and tv all on offer.

Food could be improved on. I had 'Gourmet Pie' which had obviously been in a warmer many hours as it had dried out and vegetables were frozen and microwaved. Didn't think it was good value for money.
