This pub served great honest pub grub with sizeable portions. My pie was wonderful with its own separate pot of gravy. Dogs are made welcome and there's an eclectic mix of both tables and lounging sofas with masses of books around the walls (to read at your leisure) and a separate play room for the kids.
