This is a typical pub environment, sport on the TVs, wide choice of drinks. A range of food options and the courses are pub size.

Just returned from visiting tonight. Planned to just have a drink but decided to eat there as well on the basis of what we saw coming from the kitchen! Lovely sirloin and burger, good choice of drinks, pleasant service and reasonable prices. Lovely change from chasing the fine cuisine!

Great location in a little square just off the main street. Even though it's a bar rather than a restaurant we did try a pizza one day and it was exceptional. Service was fine, a little slow at times but we're on holiday! Seems popular with the locals on a Saturday evening who turn up an hour before closing time... More
