Lunch with two ex work friends. Very pleasant, efficient service and good quality! As I need to write more letters to post this, I would also mention the lovely roaring fire, set by Melissa!

This is a clean and welcoming pub. The food is simple but really well done, and excellent value. The beer was good too. Strongly recommend. Staff were relaxed and friendly.

Only had basic snack food rather than a full meal, and yet found it to be amazing. Chipotle Chicken Wings and Pulled Pork Nachos. Great selection of Ales and Spirits. Enjoyed trying some of their new Gins. Overall, a fantastic experience, in a great atmosphere, with incredibly friendly staff.
