Called in whilst waiting for another bar to open and really enjoyed it. I’ve never seen such a big door! The deals were good and the food smelled lovely but we didn’t eat. Please start selling crisps though!

Nice place to stop for breakfast. Had stopped here for a beer the night before and seemed a lively pub. Food was okay, not amazing but did the job. Toilets needed upgrading. Wouldn't go out my way to go again but good enough
