Scallops with cauliflower puree for starter, followed by fish pie and vegetables... More

As usual a warm welcome from Liz and her staff. A roaring wood burner on an autumnal evening set the scene for a relaxing hearty meal. We chose the speciality pies as our mains, delicious! If you want a friendly,relaxing, traditional pub with delicious food visit The Drum and Monkey.
