Decent food here. We are vegetarians and they supplied a few options. Very crowded, obviously a popular pub. We found the service a tad distracted though. Bar Man appeared to have hurt himself smiling so avoided doing so! But all in all, decent value.

Good value for money and really tasty food. Menu clearly marked for anyone with food intolerances. Menu mainly involves fish but there are choices available. We had fish pie and scampi, which were both filling and tasty. The staff were attentive and cheerful.

I have never visited this inn during Christmas so are unable to answer this question. Perhaps go onto their website nearer the time, or contact them direct, Im sure they will be able to help.
