We decided to visit this pub for my father’s birthday lunch and we weren’t disappointed...we all plumped for the roasts: Lamb,Chicken, Pork and Beef. They were all well cooked with generous portions. The service was friendly and attentive. We would definitely visit again.

This is a lovely, large and very popular restaurant. We went on a Wednesday night and it was extremely busy with only a couple of tables free. The menu was nicely broad, covering two sides of A4, with daily changes. The kind I'd food available...More
