Popped in for lunch and was very impressed with the pub. Old traditional look outside but very modern and stylish inside. The owner was very coutious and friendly. The food was great and we highly recommend this pub.

It's a long time since I found an establishment in this area that serves a good top quality steak. I then returned for the carvary on Sunday and it was top class! Genuine roasted potatoes! Generous slices of carvary meats! Not like some establishments that...More
