Beautiful pub with a warm, welcoming restaurant tucked in the back. Amazing service with friendly staff and generous portions of food. Had the fish & chips and it was as tasty as it looks. 100% recommend it.

My sister’s duck was a bit dry, but the peas were good. The crab and avocado salad was truly dreadful...less than teaspoon of avocado and the crab was drowning in a flavorless mayonnaise dressing...enough said. The waitress was very nice and her service was efficient.More
