Returned after a 2 year gap and found the same excelent service. Welcoming friendly service with a good fish menu. Mid-week filled up with locals & travellers, so best to book. Worth the taxi fare from nearby Premier Inn (Travelodge is very close).

This pub is a real gem, the food and beer is very well prepared, the speciality is fish and in many visits we have never been disappointed. I would not hesitate to recommend this pub for good atmosphere, polite and friendly staff, and great food.

Yes we do have high chairs available. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed inside the pub but are welcome in the garden. Also the Gluten free menu is on the website.
