Called in for lunch on a wet afternoon, pleasantly surprised by nice food and cask ale, served by pleasant helpful staff. Myself and the Mrs shared a meat platter and was more than enough.

We had a small room off the bar for 8 of us for Sunday lunch. The food was lovely, presented well and was hot and tasty, including the vegetarian option. The service was great, very responsive without being over attentive, excellent customer service. Would definitely recommend.
