what a joy on a cold rainy spring day to find a pub with radiators on and a roaring fire!. So many establishments seem to think once April's here there's no need for heating.
Delightful service from a helpful and informed waitress.
A plate of kitchen marinated olives followed by great fish, chips and mushy peas. Great local beer and good coffee.
What a great way to cheer us on such a miserable day.
Must go again soon.

Came here for dinner, went with the chicken risotto. It was delicious however when I see chicken breast on the menu I do not expect it to be on the bone, this did make it a hassle to eat but it was most certainly worth it.

Very nice atmosphere and a very nice view from the outside weather, I will endeavour to come back for a Sunday roast during the summer!

Sucks to be you if you don’t get here.

Do book as it gets busy and I doubt you would get in if you just turned up.

Friendly stuff, lovely atmosphere and great food. All meals were perfectly done, from the burger, salmon to pork belly.

My family loved the food and the staff were so nice and friendly even when the toddler spilt a drink.

Thank you very much.

No pictures as too busy eating.

Great food, great friendly staff. Menu
Choices are for everyone and how it's presented just shows how good and tasty the food is.
