Just wanted a lunchtime snack so opted for the pate off the starter menu. It was huge!! And absolutely delicious. A little gem of a pub. Excellent value for money, lovely outside area. Very friendly staff.

Homecooked food, cooked to order, (highly recommend steak pie but take note, cooking time is 45 minutes for this dish). Well worth the wait and you can pre-order. Busy with theatre crowd, but lovely chilled out atmosphere with great service. Wi!l be coming back!!

8 hungry cyclists enjoyed a great meal and hospitality on a Friday night. We pre ordered and were not disappointed. Portions were substantial, tasty and piping hot. Nice team too.
