We were recommended to this place, largely because we were looking for somewhere for Sunday Lunch and to watch Sky Sports during the afternoon, we also checked it out on the website and it looked good for food and cask ales.

Enjoyed dinner here with my family, the owner Paul guided me through his different ales and suggested what we should have for dinner (mussels were great as was rest!). Our kids enjoyed the games available and I wouldn't hesitate on returning. Thanks for a lovely night!

The food was lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful. Wish we had eaten in the main resturant as opposed to the bar area. It became very busy very quickly and we felt like we were in the way of the locals.
