Good bar selection of beers and spirits. Local characters add to the atmosphere with some singing. Food available in the bar when the restaurant is full Dogs allowed in the bar.

Friendly bar staff, excellent food, lovely fire. You don't usually get asked how you want your steak cooking for a steak sandwich, cooked beautifully and plenty of it. Would definitely recommend and they're dog friendly.

The staff were friendly and attentive. There is a food menu available if you do not want to eat in the hotel restaurant and the portions are quite generous

We had dinner there one night and on another night popped in for a few drinks. The staff were very friendly and the locals were too.

If you want a "pub" with no atmosphere, plastic interior and unfriendly service - you've found it. Beer was OK, however this is defiantly a pub where locals come first, and they only seem to grudgingly accept visitors. This is a short review as we did not stay long and we did not eat there.

Be prepared to wait until all the locals get served first no matter if you have been there ten minutes. Prices are ok, and the little court yard out side is nice

As a party of 12 , it was quite tricky to find somewhere to fit us all in, but they welcomed us in, children, pram , no problem.
