We visited this charming pub last Sunday. Menu was simple, roast beef or roast lamb. It was superb, beautifully cooked medium rare beef and excellent parsnips, carrots and roast potatoes. All for £12.50! A good selection of well kept beers, again at very reasonable prices....More

Don't judge a book by its cover... Passed this place for years and was put off by the exterior. But venture in and you're taken in to a wonderful friendly local, serving a huge range of beers and gastro grub.
