Friendly welcome by staff & great decor & atmosphere. Good range of draught ales. Bar man offered a sample of cider to help my decision. Shown to table & given menu with specials- waitress gave her recommendation from the specials. Carafe of iced water brought to table without being asked. I had belly of pork with beetroot & apple - delicious. My Husband was very happy too with the fish & chips. We did not require anything else. We will definitely return- great evening.
The staff were excellent and really made us feel welcome and made a fuss of the dogs. The food was excellent and appeared home made. A good range of real ales/beers. Good value for money as well. We will definitely be back!
Very friendly and vibrant pub with great food! My husband and I had a delicious dinner on friday evening. Service was good and very reasonably priced.
