Went to check this place out based on the recommendations and wasn't disappointed. A friendly local with plenty of banter, good service and large portions at a very reasonable price. Sat outside with stunning views. All in all a great experience.

Friendly service, good quality beers and a nice line in "bar snacks". Not the usual peanuts/crisps here - the bar snacks on offer are things like Baked Camembert and Gambas piri piri - a touch of class and definitely above average. Bravo!

We are a small pub, with a strong focus on real ale. We serve lunch Tuesday to Friday (12 Noon - 1.30Pm). We have a pie night every Wednesday (6pm - 8.00Pm) and we serve roast dinners on a Sunday (5pm - 6.30Pm). However, we don't serve food on any other evenings.
