Popped in for lunch on Sunday. Met with a cheery welcome shown to table and offered menu and special board options. Typical tasty bar food made better by really friendly cheery staff.

had many lunches here- food still good but the service could improve, Difficult to get served at a bar where regulars are crowding round, and long wait for food but not told this when ordering Not everyone in a pub for lunch automatically wants to watch football either
