This was a fantastic find as we were staying at great motel next door. This pub served brilliant food and had great staff. Everyone was friendly including the dog. My pie and mash and gravy was just 10/10. I would thoroughly recommend this place.

A local place for sure, given the food quality and prices. Large portions. The smoked salmon pasta was delicious, the lamb shank special was excellent. Too full to try the tempting desserts!
