I wasn't expecting much as it's a chain pub but everything was excellent. Despite being a busy friday night service was fast and friendly. Food was superb, everything done with care and attention. Even the locals were friendly. I can recommend the Lamb Shank

Fantastic, huge pub. Well maintained by extra hard-working staff. Decor is traditional but fresh, toilets were very clean. Menu and drinks-value for money. Breakfast was really tasty.
