This pub is at the end of my road. It has beautiful views but that's about it. We had a meal in there that I wouldn't serve a dog, Such a shame as it deserves to be so much more. Hopefully someone that has a...More

My second review of this pub and this visit every bit as good as the last. Dogs are allowed into the bar area which is becoming a rarity nowadays and in fact the lady behind the bar greeted us with " Hello Edward" ( my...More
