Fantastic food and lovely atmosphere. Roast beef was amazing and all the deserts are home made, we both had the Raspberry Pavlova and it was lovely. Traditional Pub with lovely attentive Staff and great food. We will return and would recommend without question.

Would be nice if they had a wider selection of ales - one or two local craft ales to support the local small breweries would be good. Not sure if it's brewery-tied which may explain it. Last time I went all... More

Sea Bass was great as was the steak. We have visited this pub and restaurant many many times... More

We have been threatening to visit this pub for quite a while and finally got around to Booking a table. There is a small Restuarant area behind the pub area. The menu was varied and plenty of options. I had the sea bass which was from the specials board. It was really tasty. It was a very friendly atmosphere. We... More
