In a party of 4, two ordered rib eye steaks. The steaks were fine, but the chips had black marks on them, which looked like frost marks. On pointing this out to the manager, he just said "yes we get quite a bit of that"...More

We are regulars and never disappointed , the hot baguette sandwiches are lovely with generous portions . Cheese and onion pie is to die for. Monday night is steak night which is good value , very popular with locals so suggest booking at weekends
