I think this pub has changed hands about four times in the last few years and I am pleased to say the new management has taken it back to a friendly, welcoming place. The staff behind the bar were very smiley and chatty and the food was great. Comfy sofas and dog fiendly - perfect!

It was very busy which is to be expected however we felt that the staff were not very prepared considering it was one if the busiest weekends of the year. We both ordered the burger and chips costing around £12 each. After waiting quite a while... More

We are currently taking on new staff for the summer period as a result of this some may seem unsure of the running of the restaurant as they are in training. We all have to start somewhere, and...

We stayed last minute, food and pub both brilliant, we have eaten here before, as it's dog friendly. My opinion of room however was poor, bed was uncomfy and because staff are busy in the bar it's difficult to voice any problems with rooms, our tv didn't work so had to go to bar to ask for help.
