A lunch time visit taking advantage of the increased frequency on the local bus route. The pub was doing a good trade and we enjoyed some excellent food along with our ales.

I came with my dad to see what it was like. Driving up it looked quiet but pulling into the rear car park it was clear it was heaving. Lots of people were outside under big patio umbrellas and heaters - which is where we ended up. Nice, well presented, and clearly popular pub.
