The bartender was a hoot! Great stories. The pies were delicious and beers cold! Got a chance to talk with the locals too. Parking is self park on the street, no lot. Great place to sit back, relax, and eat.

This bar/restaurant haz a lovely feel about it. There is a small bar with an open fire. Speciality food..pies. A variety of pies to choose from including vegetarian fillings. The supplier provides the uncooked pies and the bar cook them. We were told exactly how long we would need to wait before we could eaf right from the start. All pies served with chips anx and cost about £7.25ish. Beans and gravy cost extra. Tbe pies are to die for.
