Cute pub food with a fair sized garden. Dog friendly and beer of a good quality. Why not the full 5 out of 5..... my steak pie was low on the steak side. HOWEVER the chips are amazing.

I usually eat at this venue around 7.30 and have seen food being served at 9 p.m. I can't say for certain when the kitchen closes and can only suggest you phone them an ask.
