Had a curry which was terrible, but fish n chips were average.. quite expensive for what you get. Small town, can't really expect too much. Expensive drinks, old bar. Wouldn't recommend.

The place has a lovely atmosphere to it. Wooden tables and chairs, comfy chairs, old bits and pieces on the walls and a massive screen that my husband could watch the ashes on. The chandelier made out of old metal bunk beds and beer bottles...More
