A group of 18 hungry cyclists (don't worry we had changed out of our Lycra) well satisfied by the meals and beers on offer. Nice atmosphere, efficient staff and well cooked food, highly recommended!

Really nice pub with great atmosphere especially in the bar area. Good beer, locals and dogs share the informal bar environment. The food is not gastro pub....more good hearty food..Great for meeting mates and passing the afternoon with the odd pint or three
