the burgers are good. They are huge and are served with a good side of hot chips. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm with the fire roaring in winter. I would go back again.

Haven't been here in a few years but thought we would give it a go again as visiting the mother in law..

Found this place to be extremely noisy. The meals although good, were very large portions and even the biggest eater at our table could not finish. They do have a large selection of ales and ciders.

We wanted to visit this place and have a meal. We both chose the mashed potatoes sausage and gravy. Although the tatties were superb the sausage was below average we felt the meal was overpriced.
