Afraid theres nothing wrong with our staff, two of our waitresses on Sunday were both on their second shift so probably a bit confused and still learning how best to carry out their jobs. Also don't go to a pub and order plain pan-fried chicken...More

Nice clean pub, better looking inside than out. Accepted dogs in the bar. Friendly bar staff & good range of drinks. Waited a ridiculous one hour for 2 burgers, which is why I marked them down. Food when it eventually arrived was good quality.More
