3 course christmas day dinner spot on. Food tasted lovely and served hot. Made Christmas a good one. Best part was not having to wash up after but to be served with a good Beer. Definately worth a visit.

This town pub is not the most inspiring to look at, and if we had not come from the canal looking for it, we might not have gone in. However we are pleased that we did since the food was great and the young lady...More
