Great food in a warm and welcoming environment. the locals are exceptionally friendly, the meals generous and tasty and the firearm and toasty. We liked it so much we went back the next day. Well worth a visit, if only to see the contented cat or drink the local beer.

Real character in this pub, with cheerful fire and friendly folk with good food and range of local beers and cider. Good place to relax over a meal and a pint.

Lovely and will be returning in February... More

Popped in on a quiet December evening. Lovely meal, Scampi for me & fish stew for my husband. Both very tasty with good sized portions. The homemade pork scratchings on the bar are not to be missed, they were scrummy :) A lovely locals pub with good food and a cosy atmosphere!

Was recommended to come here by the folk at the Wheelhouse - so thank you as we had good food and wine and a cosy fire to keep us warm. If you like seafood then try the crab - wonderful!!

Great atmosphere, lovely staff and food was delicious. Nice and cosy on a wet and drizzly evening and well worth another visit when we are in the area.
