Was a Sunday so very busy. Staff got us 2 seats in the bar(preferable to the restaurant). Food was piping hot(microwaved?) but tasted delicious. Drinks expensive but lovely. Ruby ale a winner. And a sharing plate dessert to finish. Excellent. Going back......definitely.More

This pub has it all. Good food, beer, seating, ambiance, drinking garden and friendly staff. You may have to book ahead for the food as it can get busy. Suitable for couples, friends meeting up and families.
