A great place for food and drink. We found a table in the back on a busy evening and had a lovely meal and a few drinks. Have been in before but not for food. Might have to add it to my list of eateries now.

Went in here for a couple drinks but stayed for one as so boring and no atmosphere at all. Bar man seemed miserable. Wouldn't go back in here at all.

We ate here twice as we enjoyed the food so much. Really filling good pub grub and lovely service to go with it. Just a shame there wasn't more of a choice for coeliacs.
