Popped in for a light lunch with friends. The beer was good and well kept. The food was excellent. Light bar brunch, but well presented and very tasty. The deli platter was more than enough in terms of quantity and the quality was superb.

6 of us ate here to celebrate a birthday during our holiday. Very relaxed, a good menu and very pleasant staff. We had booked and our table was ready.

Friendly helpful pub that serves both pub favourites and really delicious 'specials' with unusual flavours worthy of top restaurant. Informal atmosphere. Best to book in advance.

Sorry I don't know as I am able to eat gluten. I think they had some dishes but I would call and make sure.

Yes, 100 percent dogs are allowed. We go there 2-3 times a month for dinner and our dog comes with us every time. She particularly enjoys the dog treats on offer!
