Waitress service friendly. Had 2 glasses of wine as special offer. We both had salmon. Food very poor [cooked properly?] Disappointing as the restaurant is in a very convenient place for us to walk to.

We met up with some friends and their 5mth old puppy. We chose this pub as it stated that it was dog friendly and it certainly was. The staff were friendly and attentive and the lunch was lovely and we will be returning.
