Lovely pub with a varied menu. Carvery had plenty of choice, 2 meats and crispy roasties. Would definitely recommend the hake with chorizo and kale, very flavoursome. Only criticism would be more kale please! Booking advised as can get very busy.

What else can one say? The beef on this occasion was medium to well done - as I like. Apart from their rare off days, this place takes a lot of beating if you don't want to be too posh.
