We ate at 7pm Tuesday evening. Pub busy. From the menu at least 6 of the options from the hot main courses were not available. The food was poor quality, the children’s pizza looked and tasted disgusting. My veggie curry was cold and bland. A shame as pub looks great and good selection of drinks.

We sat outside for a beer and a sandwich. The cheese in the sandwiches was described as mature Cheddar. They were not cheap. It was a thin slice of processed cheese with the texture and taste of plastic. I told our server of our disappointment when she came to ask if all was ok. She apologised and said she would pass on the feedback. No-one else came to speak to us before we left. I sent an FB message suggesting that if that is the cheese they always use then they need to change the description on the menu. I have not received a reply and will not be eating there again.

This became our favourite local for my wife and I are our two boys (aged 9 and 13).
It's famous for its goulash and rightly so. Great collection of local ales too, in a proper old-fashioned pub atmosphere.

A busy little pub. Didn't actually eat in here, but did have a drink a few times. The staff are very friendly in this pub and make you feel very welcome. Very nice atmosphere and good taste in background music.

A good pub with excellent bar food. Well known for its pies and mash. Friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Book a table and your favourite pie as both go quickly. Worth a visit.
