We went for a Christmas get together. The food was bland and awful, I could have made a much better roast myself! What’s worse is that the food gave me a bad stomach! Would avoid!

Sorry to hear of your experience. It would be much appreciated if you could let me know when you came for food and what you had; This is obviously unfortunate and I would like to resolve the issue, if you’d allow. Kind regards

Good food, different from the norm. Good selection of cask ales and lager. Pleasant outside area, surrounded by very old architecture of sandwich. Will visit again.
