As with all speights ale houses - expect good food, generous portions, and reasonable prices. Good for families with a children’s menu well catered. This is higher end pub grub though - so don’t expect fine dining if you’re out to impress.

Came here for dinner on a Sunday after a busy day spent exploring. Enjoyed the lamb shanks and the sausages and mash. Was delicious and hearty . Service was a little slow given how quiet they were but all round a good, simple night out.
