I've been here twice for the pub quiz. It really is such an excellent quiz with a huge variety of questions and rounds. We haven't eaten meals but we've ordered sides which have been tasty and the pub itself is lovely.

An excellent pub serving traditional fare alongside a great selection of drinks, the big upside of this pub is it's massive beer garden which is beautiful and buzzy, a great pub
