“Great little pub that serves great quality homemade, Yorkshire food. The portions are huge and very reasonably priced. I had a 'slice' of steak and ale pie- it was crammed full of meat with a rich gravy, the best I've ever had.”
Had a group booking here with some friends and everything was perfect. The food was fantastic and you get a decent sized portion. The Yorkshire Hotpot or Lamb and Mint pie is a MUST. The deserts are just as fantastic. The atmosphere was good, the staff were helpful and the price was very reasonable.
