Went for a spontaneous roast dinner on a colder Sunday. Large well cooked portions, you definitely won't go hungry and the crackling on the pork was amazing!!

Our meal (for two) came to £34.90. A little higher than I was expecting, but then the meal was a lot better than I was expecting.

Yes we often get wheel chairs into the whole pub! You will just need to let a member of staff know when you arrive so we can open the side gate for you, unfortunately we do not have disabled toilets.....
