Enjoyed some really good food here recently. What looks like standard pub menu is transformed by good ingredients and great attention to detail by the chef. Add in an excellent beer and wine list and you're onto a winner

Scorching hot day when we visited and it was wonderful to sit on veranda with a lovely cool breeze and enjoy well prepared meals and drinks. A delightful pub.

The food here was wonderful, particularly the Ribs, Polenta bites, Calamari, and The créme brûlée in my opinion. The customer service from the waiting staff was impeccable and made the experience. I definitely would recommend to anyone who asks.
