Been here a few times now. Service is friendly and the food is great. Fairly good choice of veggie options. The Steak & Ale pie was excellent, because they use the local butcher for meat supplies. Great value and right in the town centre.

Seating inside all very close together and not that comfortable. Not a great variety of drinks at the bar for a pub. Bands start to late in the evening. Bar staff friendly though.

Family run pub restaurant tucked just behind the town hall. The menu has a variety of home made, locally sourced options ranging from light lunches through to main meals and sharing platters. There is always a minimum of 3 quality house ales available and a very good wine selection.
