Had a great Sunday lunch today. The Scotch Egg starter is a must have, and the roast beef was perfect. So great food, great service and great value. What is there not to like about it 👍

The staff were very helpful. Locals were chatty at the bar. Food was delicious, however slightly expensive in my opinion. Great selection of wines. Booking recommended if you wish to eat.
