Thank you for taking the time to review us. It was great to hear as first time customers that you were pleased with our lovely pub, food & staff, unfortunately during our busy times there will be a delay as everything is prepared fresh.

Visited numerous times for Sunday lunch (as a couple and with family) as the food is always delicious. Staff are friendly & the service is great. Always leave clean plates & always have room for a pudding! Would highly recommend :)
