Some of the food is actually ok. I have spoken to a few managers about it and they seem to differ, whether to use the printed instructions or their own instinct. This applies to the pies apparently.

Went back in today for a meal, yes you read it right, we had a very good Sunday dinner in here.  I have to say that I have fallen in love with this pub.  I'm just sorry it's about 100 mile round trip to get there.  I would love this one to be my local.

Awesome little pub. Very friendly managers running it and friendly local people whom make you feel very welcome.

Having recently moved to the area and having ran another pub (Sam's Smiths) I do visit on a regular basis. Not enough in my opinion though!  ;D

Thought that the managers here had been with SS for over a year. So have they jsut had enough and decided to jack it in. With the salary that Humphrey is offering, I am not surprised that they can earn more lorry driving.
