This is just down the road from me its brilliant. I can take my dog in. Real beer and proper pub food not microwave stuff. Landlady friendly and beautiful bar staff . Parking a little tricky 9/10 on my pub list

Staid oldish pub in lower middle class suburb. Mix of beers averagely kept. Nothing remarkable but a small enclosed sun trap area at back best used in warm months. There is already a Tripadvisor restaurant thread for the tidal fortunes of the variable catering.

They have recently gotten a new owner and team. All of whom are very welcome and friendly, the chef especially. The food is very good considering how cheap it is to eat here. Our family go here very often and will continue to do so.
