We rang up to book in for a Sunday dinner as we had heard good things. Inside the pub is really cool decoration. It’s a real chilled out atmosphere and a cosy feel. We sat inside but you can go out the back to the...More

Terrific beer - what more could you want from a real ale pub? Perhaps staff that know about real beer? You have that too!

Very odd attitude from the barman - get a different job mate, don't suit you ! Hospitality ? More hospital, mostly the food. Only had burgers on the evening menu for mains, manky coleslaw, supposed to be a seasame seed bun - was poppy seed...More
