We were a party of four at lunchtime. One of us needed gluten free for which everything was clearly identified and with plenty of choice. The food was good home cooked fayre with traditional as well as more adventurous options. All four of us were very satisfied with our meals. The gluten free traditional fish and chips were a classic. Crispy gluten free batter on fresh tasting fish with all the extras. The beer choice is an impressive selection of local brews, to be enjoyed by those not driving. Choice was assisted by helpful staff with samples. Finished with properly made strong coffee. I know I should try to offer a balanced view, but really can't think of anything to criticise. If you want a great traditional British pub meal experience, I can strongly recommend Dockray Hall. More
