Really lovely pub/restaurant. Huge selection of craft beers, gins, vodkas etc and very nice food. Not too expensive but very plentiful, the burger was great, would thoroughly recommend.

We called in here for lunch whilst on holiday. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. We had the ploughman’s which was delicious and a large portion size. I especially liked the hard boiled, pickled egg. Excellent service and excellent food.

Staff very friendly and helpful, menu is not huge but still manages to have something for everyone. Prices a little above pub food but reasonable for the quality.
