Came here by chance as had been recommended by friends. Was quiet when arrived which is not always a good sign. Let me say people are missing out here. Lovely food and very reasonable in price. Somewhere I will definitely be returning to.

Had a lovely meal here. It was very busy when we went (around 7 pm) but we did manage to get a table without booking. The food was very good but unfortunately it took 40 minutes to arrive...hence 4 stars instead of 5.

I waited 40 minutes after ordering my food which was salmon with salad. When eventually it came I was not impressed and it was overpriced at £13.75. The salad was limp and uninteresting. There were two young girls waiting on the tables who seemed to...More

What an absolutely delightful little pub this is. We just happened on it by accident after looking for a nice place to eat. Food is good with a fair sized menu, and the beer selection spot on.
