Packed in the lovely garden
Visited yesterday and what a lovely afternoon. Outside was packed but managed to get a table out in the lovely garden and ordered the paella which was fantastic. The atmosphere in this pub is very friendly and welcoming and very clean. Would highly recommend a visit to this pub!
