Lovely clean pub with nice day time views and outside seating. Very friendly landlord .Good food which could benefit from a fresh fish option for non meat eaters. Will return and recommend.

No atmosphere. Food very poor and barely warm. Broccoli almost raw, French beans tough, beef overcooked and tough. Starters mediocre. Service off hand and lacking in warmth. A big disappointment as we had taken young Australian friends who are spending the summer here.
