I had a beef and onion bap with chips and a pint of bitter. Included an awful lot of meat but the chips weren’t great and it was served with an unnecessary onion gravy. I’ll give them another try soon.

It's a large restaurant rather than a pub that serves food and not overflowing with gemuetlichkeit (deceptively, given the historic-looking exterior) but the food was good.

I am not sure, but we are calling in tomorrow so can check for you, but the best bet is to either e mail or ring the pub, or read the menu on the website.
