The classic British theme carries onto the menu where you will find dishes such as 'The Classic Prawn Cocktail', 'Hand Beer Battered Haddock and mushy peas' and 'Steak and Ale Pies', and by Pie we mean a proper individual pie, a beautiful filling encased entirely in shortcrust pastry, no puffy lids in sight!! On Sundays, we serve a traditional a Roast Dinner wif all the trimmings and choice of meats. We offer a relaxed environment where you can feel at home, providing friendly service and hearty classic lunches, dinners and desserts.
