It provides excellent value food for locals and visitors alike along with 5 real ales that change on a regular basis - Bass and Skinners are the two brews that are always there. For meals you can try the budget buster lunches in the week, the main menu at lunchtime or in the evening, Sunday lunches, the Specials Board or the 4* gourmet meal at the end of every month.
