Although this pub is quite local to us and we have heard good reports from friends, we had never been there ourselves.

Our waitress was excellent even though she was new. The food was beautifully cooked and we were all served together. The portion sizes were very generous. Would definitely return if we were in the area again. The local beers were enjoyed by some of the group too. Many thanks.
