We visited this pub twice last week and were pleasantly surprised, the staff were very welcoming, menu good and most importantly were able to take our dog in, allocated areas of course but a very pleasant place to eat.

A really nice meal from an extensive menu.Had quite a long wait but in fairness was busy.The only issue I had was the fact no one seemed to be interested in you after your meal was served. Would go back.

As a local resident this is the place I always go for an English Breakfast. Choose 6 or 8 items from a wide range. Always well cooked, generous portions and reasonable price.
