Friendly and efficient service. Sadly the food is indifferent at best and more costly than it ought to be for what it is. But if in the area you can at least get filling sustenance as the helpings are good.

Really nice old building, with a proper fireplace. Beer well kept (2 real ales on cask). I only popped in for a drink so can't comment on food but menu looks like standard pub grub. Atmosphere nice and bar staff very polite & friendly.
