We were shocked at how unfriendly the staff were (all male that we saw and dressed like nightclub bar staff). One was positively huffy and pretty much tossed me a menu at the bar, rather than answer a very simple question: ''It's all on the...More

I had a lovely evening in this welcoming pub. Whilst not a dog owner, I thought it a lovely touch to offer dog biscuits and even bed loans to visiting dogs. I ordered a pint of local ale, which was lovely. Then moved on to...More
