We had a great meal in the "living room" adjacent to the main dining room. The dining room was a bit functional, but the living room was cosy and had a roaring open fire. The food was excellent and the service ok.

Great pub in fantastic location; previous poor reviews on here can be discounted as new landlord and staff have transformed the place. Food excellent, although a couple of key bits unavailable off menu. Atmosphere busy in early evening but does tend to fade in later...More
