Met up with family for a post Christmas lunch. Service was good and behind the small front there is a warren of rooms and plenty of space. Good choice on the menu and food was good quality with generous portions. Would definitely go again.

Excellent old pub. Flagstone floors, old furniture, cosy fire in winter. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Extensive menu, from pies to pizza. All our food was very good. Wide ranging wine list and good beers. Good for families. Focus perhaps on dining rather than drinking.

The food was fairly priced (with perhaps the desserts a little expensive for what they were). There was a large but not too large menu. The mains were interesting, and... More
