The menu here is simple but extremely effective. Good food in massive portions. Tips are a baked potato or burger with toppings, or haggis fritters. Friendly efficient service. Great garden for the summer. A real treat :-)

Cavachongirl01 Can you please tell me which other pubs in the area serve good food? I live in this area and have yet to find one. Yes the landlord can be a bit grumpy sometimes but can't we all. I am surprised the dog was aggressive she usually keeps herself to herself.

The greyhound in Wiggington is not too far away and serves good food and has a decent garden. Best to book for the evening though as it gets rammed!
