I can’t believe I’ve only just found this amazing pub! Went last night with visiting friends and their greyhound after many recommendations as THE place to eat in the area. I absolutely loved the traditional charm, the fairy lights, the decor etc etc. The food...More

One of, if not the best, pub in the area. We have been several times and will continue to frequent. Service is outstanding, with staff able to talk through not just the extensive menu (including a British twist on tapas) but also the various beers...More

They do a great gluten free offering. Separate menu, though I wouldn’t advise the gluten free gravy as it’s made from a packet and would ruin the gorgeous food so I didn’t have any. Everything I had was excellent.
