Wonderful staff, good menu and great to sit on the patio on a warm sunny day in England. I highly recommend their chicken fajitas. They have lots of choices of beers and spirits.

Staying just 100 yards up the road and popped in here for a drink then decided to come back for dinner. Typical pub grub but very tasty and huge portions. Dog friendly and lots of nooks and crannies with tables on different levels
