Excellent meal. Crispy pork belly salad was delicious - the Atlantic salmon was cooked perfectly. Great service. It would be great if they offered a low carb or carb free beer.

Really liked the food and all the meals were lovely. The staff were mostly friendly but one was a bit stressed when taking orders. This settled as the meals came out. Otherwise a great place for our xmas lunch.

This pub has had a complete makeover about six months ago. They've done a great job doing up the building inside and the food and service are amazing.
