Very nice pub, family and dog friendly. The food was generally quite good but the ONION RINGS are the best I've ever tasted! The onions were sliced thinly and the batter was so light and melt-in-your-mouth! Even better than tempura batter!

Really tasty well presented food. The sharing platter was fabulous. However the management really do need to buck their ideas up. There is an air of complacency about the way the place is run, which I guess is due to the high number of tourists...More

Lovely pub with great food and staff although sometimes a wait for food but only at really busy times which i think is to be expected as very popular.
