Lovely welcoming atmosphere. Good service. Tasty well cooked food. There is a large car park on the opposite side of the road - but you must be wary of the traffic. We had booked a table for 12.30 so it was busy but not packed...More

I had a beef and onion bap with chips and a pint of bitter. Included an awful lot of meat but the chips weren’t great and it was served with an unnecessary onion gravy. I’ll give them another try soon.More

I am not sure, but we are calling in tomorrow so can check for you, but the best bet is to either e mail or ring the pub, or read the menu on the website.
