Nice pub in town with a bit of a country vibe with all the main pub features, including a couple of bars, pool tables, restaurant as well as gaming and a dance floor. Good selection of local beers on tap.

Great service and a great meal. Our waitress, Fiona, provided great service with a welcoming smile and genuine personal attention. The Chicken Caesar Salad was tender,generous and tasty as was the Lamb hind shank. Hot, fresh, tender and tasty. Thoroughly recommended.

Disappointed again. Last visited a year ago and the food was awful. No better this time. Service ended after table was cleared from mains. Waited ages to get desert order taken and gave up. Won’t be going back.
