Really great visit earlier this month while traveling home from Penn Bay Medical Center. The menu was really exciting, and the options were amazing. The Scotch Egg was perfect and delicious. Newell had the gamekeepers Pie.... venison and rabbit, delicious and authentic.

I agree about looking at the menu online. Plus, the owner/manager seems so flexible, he would probably oblige a reasonable request!
