Pie,mash and liquor-whats not to like! Choice of pies,which were really tasty. LIquor was a bit watery for my liking,but that's personal taste. Presentation could have been better or the pies taken out of the foil cases at least, but all in all, very good...More

Depends what you're looking for I suppose. Went in here twice and found the Barman friendly and very helpful. Yes it is a 'local's' pub but that's what adds to its rough charm. Rough and ready but loved it. Can't comment on the food because...More
