Service was really good, very nice guy. Pate starter was excellent. Good size portions, lovely food, would eat there again.


Love it here! Really friendly pub and our little dogs are welcome great food, love the roast and the meat pie is to die for. Recently tried the Thursday night tapas night it was superb - and great value. Menu has loads of choices. Would definitely recommend it


Good menu with lots of choice. Food was of a high standard and everyone in the group thoroughly enjoyed what they ordered. Not one complaint or moan. Will definitely go again

My fiance and I dined here tonight for our 'date night' There is an extremely extensive menu to choose from which changes regularly as well as their standard menu. The food was very good, perfectly cooked, can't fault it. Also, very reasonably priced.


Took parents for a lunchtime treat. Gotta say the food and service was fab. We ordered from the main menu and the fish stew special (which was very good indeed). All home cooked food and brilliant value for money. Would highly recommend a visit.
