Stayed in the area for 5 days and this was our go to place! Didn't really have a meal but had snacks and beer! Super clean and cosy and the staff are absolutely lovely! Thank you for warning us up on these cold and rainy days! Looking forward to coming back!

We went here for a Sunday dinner and it was delicious! We had the lamb dinner and really enjoyed every bit and scraped our plates. Would definitely recommend for food.

I read all the reviews before risking it...don't! Someone compared the fish and chips to Aldi's own...that was a compliment... We were greeted by an enthusiastic waitress/barmaid. Bogged down with managing the entire bar and dining table she did her best and was the pubs only Positive fActor. We order our mains and then immediately asked if we could actually... More

Firstly Thank you for your review but I'm extremely disappointed with it as I'm sure you were with your food. It seems that my bar tender dealt with your complaint in a professional manner. She gave you a full refund on your meal that you complained was inedible and also went the extra mile by giving you and your family/friends... More

Soulless. Only one beer on. Food very average and choice limited. Menu lacked imagination and not all specials on. Service indifferent. No wonder it was empty.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I'm sorry that we weren't able to satisfy your needs on this particular day. From time to time we do run out of beers/food especially in the winter months when trade is slow. We stock four draft lagers , three types of Robinsons ales and two draft ciders. We... More

We booked a table and on arrival were shown to a table in the restaurant room. Then...nothing! No-one came back to take an order - or to explain that we should be ordering at the bar. Once we worked this out we did order, but when the meals arrived three out of the five meals were wrong in some way.... More

Thank you for bringing this to my attention, bad (and good) reviews always encourage us to improve and do better. We sometimes have a problem with our back dinning room when it comes to table reservations, often the customer will think that it is a restaurant and that we provide full table service, but this is not the case we...

There is a good amount of food options and the food is good it's just a normal pub and there isn't really anything special about it. I do not recommend getting the take away fish and chips. The staff are friendly.
