Food and drinks overall good. The fish and chips is always a good choice. Lovely decor and pleasant service. The ladies toilet is on the second floor after a rather steep set of stairs. Don't miss it !

Had a fantastic time at this friendly pub yesterday - an extra treat was the magnificent Fallen Heroes band. They play every Sunday from 4.30 until 7.00. Well worth a visit !
