No idea, best to phone directly
We had the same experience and there was nowhere to enjoy our drink after our afternoon walk as they use all inside space for dining!!!!..How can they call this a pub????? I gave them a low rating too.

We serve chips as an accompanying dish. Children's portions - we offer small portions of the fish and chips and sausage with mash or chips. Some other dishes can be adjusted too. On a Sunday we offer a small roast beef.
