We loved the Camembert sharing platter. The puds were clearly homemade and totally delicious. We had to wait for approximately 30 minutes but it was well worth it. Second time we have visited this year. Staff friendly and welcoming.

Title says it all really! Lovely pub with convivial hosts and clientele. Local pale ale compared very favourably with my usual Reet Pale Sheffield tipple and the sausages were sublime! Oh and we won the monthly quiz!!
