This has got to be one of the best ( if not the best) pubs for food. The steak nights are fantastic value. Oops I shouldn't tell you. You might all want to go.

The food arrived quickly and was served in a metal "basket." It contained 4 small battered cod portions & hot crunchy chips. A far larger portion than I expected. I passed on... More

We popped into the pub on spec and fortunately they had a table available. We skipped starters and went for the beef and pork roasts. The portions were... More

Warm friendly welcome. Cosy atmosphere. Cheerful, really helpful Staff. We loved this place, the food was amazing, plenty of it, really hot with that "home cooked" flavour. Best Sunday lunch around.
