Visited mid afternoon - so bar was quiet - but they were still serving food. Excellent pint of Jarl from the fairly local Fyne ales brewery!

Casual bar. Good value- the prices are reasonable and the food is tasty. Locals eat here so it is a little boisterous as they visit. Fun atmosphere.

The title says it all really! Visited on a very quiet night in May, but still a nice ambience and good service. I sure we'll visit again!

This pub is a traditional English pub, no doubt about this and has just changed hands to new owners. The pub is friendly and welcoming and now open to 11 every night. Visit and make your own mind up but i loved it.
