This is one of the iconic local pubs. There is a mix of regulars and younger couples with families who make great use of the large outdoor area. The food is good and above average for pub food. The staff are friendly and efficient which...More

A pub with a good old public bar (very male dominated ladies!!) and with a good garden for families, but my love is the food. An excellent menu, well prepared, well presented and delicious. This is certainly a place to visit.
