Description: Popular old pub, particularly renowned for their food. Booking is advisable if eating. (See also the Hobler which is run by the same people).
Food is very good and portions are generous. A good stock of single malt whisky and the Gales country wine range. Ale is a bit lacking, both in choice and in quality. You can usually find 6X and Flowers plus occasional guests (Ringwood and Greene King brews have been experienced). If you're a carnivore, I recommend the Hobler Hock; wall-to-wall pig with loads of veg.

food very good, with a lot of variety on the specials board. portions are decent, but not over-generous. not a pub to go to if you don't like dogs!
