Food is average at best and is priced very high, the interior is very good after the recent refurb with old railway sleepers as benches which are surprisingly comfortable, but prices are way to high, the couple that own the pub are very nice and...More

This pub has been renovated recently. The tables are set out with two chairs on one side and a plain wooden bench running along on the other. This is just bare wood to sit on with some cushions to sit on. The wood window surrounds...More

Oh dear! Had a shock when we visited. The pub we knew was no more. We only had tea and moved on. The menu was more up market and so was the price. I daresay the food might be good so all I can say is to give it a try... More
