Stopped here only for a mid afternoon drink. Service at the bar was a little slow but the location was central and the price reasonable. Large building with lots of tables inside and out. Dogs were welcome outside.

Butchers sausages, tasteless and more cereal than meat content. Chips so dry you couldn't swallow them and baked beans heated so many times they were like bullets. Way over priced. Would not go back there.

Reasonably priced pub food with good service. Plenty of seats. Would recommend the burgers and macaroni cheese. It is a family pub, with areas away from the noise.
