The bar staff and all there were exceptionally welcoming and friendly. Lovely pub with excellent food. The portions are on the large side but not complaining about that at all. We shared the tempura prawns and our mains were black n blue burger and rib...More

A lovely pub, with good grub and beer, service excellent, we had fish and chips, which were very good with generous portions, seeing others with the lamb hotspot, wish we'd chosen that, looked delicious, confirmed by the party involved! Unfortunately only street parking!

The vegetarian chilli was very tasty, nicely spicy, and well presented. The lasagne was simply gorgeous, with a really tasty cheesy topping. The chips were perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed both our meals, and will certainly return.

We liked the inside, full of genuine old bits and pieces, and a friendly place to eat. The food was good bar snack range and very good value. I recommend the venison casserole, very tasty and tender.

Possibly the most ridiculous Trip Advisor post yet received. On a busy Steak night where we had about 50 people turn up without booking, we realised we might run out of chips. I decided to pip round to the local fish and chip shop and...More
