Have been here twice now, both on windy rainy welly days. Nice, warm cosey pub/restaurant. Food is your basic pub type grub however it is delicious and well cooked. I highly recommend the chips & curry sauce!!

We had really excellent steaks, as well as a great selection of beers and side orders. The atmosphere is pleasant with good music. Definitely recommended.
