Was really disappointed as went for lunch ordered a burger and chips. It took an hour for the food to arrive then when it did there was a big long black hair in it. So then it took another ten minutes for another one. It wasn't busy so was surprised it took so long

Nice beer garden, which was lovely and clean. Staff were lovely and the cute dog station outside was great for hot weather. Decent price for drinks.

Was at the CHARITY school quiz night mentioned above. The pub GAVE the prizes and beefburgers for free so the primary school would raise even more. The quiz was well supported and so the pub was heaving. The staff bent over backwards to accomadate everyone and keep the copius number of food orders flowing from the kitchen. They are all... More
