Nice beer but I think they encourage too many dogs. When I go to a pub I don’t want dogs barking and unresponsive owners not controlling them. They even have dog biscuits on the bar. How bout something like crisps or nuts for the punters?

Ordered a pint and a gin & tonic, the g&t was served in a half pint glass (glassy) Decided if that was the best they could do I would eat elsewhere (Walkers further along the road)

A large group of us had a meal and drink on a Friday lunchtime. A fabulous sunny afternoon in the enclosed, grassed, beer garden. Good beer and food. Very convenient for the caravan site just up the road. Would certainly go back.
