We took overseas visitors here for dinner as we knew that good food, hearty portions and good beer would be served. Everyone enjoyed their meals ( vegetable shepherds pie, steak and ale pie, and scampi and chips). Excellent and friendly service from the young waitress.

The main ordinary things stay the same. The entire menu is written on chalk boards so changes do occur but on the whole, apart from specials i.e. fresh fish dishes, you can garentee always something you like and can eat.
