Food was absolutely delicious. We had a lovely French waiter (Didn't catch his name.....) who is an incredible credit to the pub. Friendly and chatty! If you want a relaxed and informal get together with friends and family, this is fabulous!

Had a great meal here with a few friends couple of months back. Good, wholesome pub food cooked well. Also had a steak the week after and found it of decent quality. Will be returning.
