Been meaning to try this pub before now and wish I had done. The food was superb. We all had the chef's special of the day which was chargrilled swordfish and it was absolutely gorgeous. Venue is lovely and staff were excellent. Would highly recommend.

We went for lunch and the location of the pub restaurant was lovely in the sunshine. The menu was extensive with daily specials added. We all enjoyed the quality of the food and the service was efficient and unobtrusive. Reasonably priced for the location.
