Stopped in for a drink and meal and were greeted warmly. It was a busy evening with good atmosphere, the food was nice and good size portions ! Staff were helpful and friendly and the beer cold and refreshing 😀

Parking is off street right next to(just before) the hotel on the left. They have their own car park area - first come, first served- free and is quite safe.
