Nice dog-friendly pub, serving great food. Arrived about 5:30 on a wet Monday evening and the pub was already beginning to get busy. Lots of choice on the menu - the sea bass curry was delicious.

Arrived around 7 pm without booking. Very busy, lady who was clearly in charge said she could get us seated in 10-15 min, and was good to her word. Food was good and plentiful. Would happily return when next in this area.
