We arrived tired, hungry and jet lagged. We shared a number of delicious tapas type food and had the pistachio cheese cake for desert. Great service and atmosphere.

Lovely local pub that has developed a very good menu fish and chips are great . Excellent range of both craft and local beers. Service is excellent and staff really know their beers. Beer changes regularly. Don't be put off by the exterior i on what was once a main road it looks a bit like a Watneys 1930 s pub inside is good decor. There is also a reasonable sized beer garden

Been meaning to visit here for ages
My other half ordered the roast lamb and I had the roast beef, the veg was the freshest and tastiest I have had in a very long time, the best cheese cauliflower too
This was our first visit but certainly won’t be our last

Don't be put off by the ordinary exterior; this is a pub with character and a good vibe. The staff are super friendly and helpful and this makes a massive difference to the visit.

The beer is really well kept and equally well priced. I think that a pint of decent pint was about £3.50, and that's quite refreshing, especially after paying town centre prices earlier in the day.

I'm going to give a bit of constructive feedback as opposed to criticism because this is the sort of pub that I really want to see thrive - it's obviously run by people who care and that shines through.

I'd sort out the bench seating inside as they are too narrow and the dado rails stick in your back - really uncomfortable!

The food is OK but not amazing; the prices are just a bit too high.

We'd definitely return

Cheers
