Very friendly place to feel the inner side of English people. Great welcome. Very nice decoration. Good to have a drink before dinner.

Unusual to find a pub that offers a genuine light lunch where the portions are small but adequate and very tasty. Add to that the delightful surroundings, cheerful staff and good selection of beer it is just right when you don’t want a large meal...More

I have been a few times for lunch recently and have been impressed on all occasions. Service good, quality good and in a decent location a few minutes drive from the town centre.

Lovely pub near Caverns. We had very good Sunday roast there, staff was very friendly and attentive, food was very good and plenty of it. Pub is very nicely done inside and feel more like friendly restaurant than pub. Strongly recommend and only 5 min...More

Good menu with a wide choice, in a nice relaxed area with good service. The food is good although most of it is deep fried. But then this is the restaurant of a pub.
