Lovely little pub, however disappointed by a very unfriendly cold welcome. Not a smile between any of the staff which was a shame. Food was average, we wont be returning as felt totally unwelcome

Great pub for food or drinks, cosy with character, reasonably priced. Reason not 5 star is the service was a little slow.
