Full on a mid-week evening, and nearly everyone eating gives you a big clue about this place. Parking, nice decor and atmosphere inside, free wifi and strong range of drinks. Flatbreads are definitely to be tried - not just because they are made daily, but...More

I have loved this place for years - been using the dog for over 20 years as I love the setting and the traditional pub interior. I recently heard comments that it had gone downhill but I hadn't had a bad experience until recently. Food...More

I can only hope & pray feastingonfist that you’re never needed as a police witness to any crime because the lack of detail given in your ‘review’ leaves me very little to remedy. If we are to investigate your claim of going downhill you could,...More
