Food was excellent as was the service. Had to wait a while for our main course but the staff told us they had a big party in. Apart from that, I would definitely recommend.

Lovely pub, great environment, lovely food. We had roast beef and roast chicken mains which were lovely. The kids portions were very generous and both children were delighted with their desserts as well.
