Recommend as great value for money, friendly service, would return. I had the roast beef served with fresh vegetables, mash and roast potatoes. My husband had the pork, fab also. The staff are trying so hard to keep this pub going and it needs lots of support.

The minute we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome from both staff and customers alike. The menu offers a good choice of reasonably priced food, including a specials board, beautifully served in an attractive dining area.

Lovely local pub. Cosy interior. Staff are so friendly and attentive. Proper Yorkshire service! Delicious food-had the pan fried salmon special and it was probably the best salmon I've ever had! Great evening, love this pub.
