We go here about once a month and the food is always good and reasonably priced. There is always a specials board, lunch time menu and theme nights mid week.

Dear Jsnholidays, We are a little confused by this review as there are so many inaccuracies regarding the pub, it's dishes and how Tripadvisor works as a tool for people to come and visit based on reviews. Firstly, dogs are allowed in the bar area,...More
