Lovely pub with good food and drinks bit a bit pricey. Dog friendly and nice staff. If you're staying there or at the sister hotel you can get discount.

Nice hot meal at a good price. Service was slow but the food was good and worth the wait. I got the chicken and my companion got the sausages and chips. The chicken was juicy with good flavor. Sausage was made in Cumbia and delicious.
