Always a warm welcome. Plenty of choices of ales (most of the time so long as they're not all settling!) Food reasonable value. Can get busy. Plenty of parking but this can get busy too! ;-)

Extremely friendly staff behind the bar - even though it was busy and bustling, one staff member in particular went the 'extra mile' to help which was very much appreciated. Thankyou to Joe !!

With 5 friends we had our regular weekly night out. Good choice of beers and wines, informed and helpful staff but can get busy and noisy. Overall always a pleasant place to visit. Reasonably priced.
