We came in for lunch on Saturday, we had a lovely girl named Issy (maybe was lizzie) who served us. She had great knowledge of the menu and the wine list. Was a lovely atmosphere and the live music was a great bonus!

We really enjoyed our evening here. The interior of the pub is cosy and full of atmosphere. The Pulled Pork burger was gigantic and very tasty, also the Lamb meatballs with taboulah. Prices very reasonable. Local wine selection was good.Staff very friendly and efficient.
