Had dinner with friends, my wife and I had pasta which was pretty good. My friend has gluten issues and had a GF Pizza and there was a good beer selection as well.

Decent beer/local wines. The fish & chips were probably the best I've had this far from the coast!. Huge portion.

This is a restaurant with a pretty much standard pub menu. Food was good service better and the atmosphere better yet. In an old (18th century) house with lots of old looking wood.
