We booked as a party of 20 for a christmas get together. So often pub food is disappointing, but skinners managed to provide a high quality meal for a reasonable price. The steak pie was excellent and everyone went home happy. Top tip- the stella pints here are so good!

It was warm and inviting with friendly service from the wonderful staff. It has a good selection of local and international beers, wine and ales. We stayed for dinner and the meals were terrific. The menu... More
