Visited on Saturday night with my Husband and 2 friends. My husband and I have eaten here before but our friends have not. We were quickly shown to our table and ordered our drinks. The restaurant itself was nice and busy and there was a large party in celebrating a birthday. Food arrived and it was amazing. Was gutted the... More

The place was not too busy for 1pm on Sunday , which may be a reflection of the food. After a nice starter, the we family was disappointed with the roast beef dinner. Despite looking impressive, the Yorkshire pudding was hard and dry. The roast potatoes were hard and only lukewarm. The beef was beautiful, but I do like my... More

Had a surprise meal for my friends 30th last night and they were so accommodating, the man serving us was brilliant. He definitely made the night, food came out in good time. Brilliant selection of wine and we even got a little taster when we couldn't decide which bottle to get.. the little things are always noted. Food was delicious... More

This pub and its gardens are clean and beautifully presented. The atmosphere inside is fabulous and the staff are excellent. However, we arrived close to teatime and maybe that was the problem the noise from families and screaming children and babies was unbelievable and I would recommend taking a table to the rear of the pub, we had taken the...

I will not go into great detail, however this has become so lack lustre it almost drains your energy as you walk in the door. The staff are lovely but you can see from the front of house staff they are just waiting for the next complaint, One meal went back,the other 2 just looked like sadness on a plate.... More

Had the two courses £15.95, which was good value for money as the quality of the food was pretty good. Unfortunately the mains came and didn't have much veg. We had to wait a while for gravy which meant the food was not hot when we ate it. The gravy was really watery and definitely not worth the wait. The... More

Chance visit with family late afternoon. Promptly received and made very welcome. Ambience was very pleasant, wood burning stove and well cared for barn feel to the decor: open and spacious. Waiting staff knowledgable with good timing and just the right engagement. Nice touch helping elderly mother in law with an extra cushion. Food selection to meet all tastes and... More

Very disappointed. We booked a table here for 4.30pm today (Sunday). It advertises on its menu that they serve Sunday roast until 5pm. We travelled for half an hour to get here to be told that there were no Sunday roast dinners left. Despite booking the table almost a week in advance, we were never told that there was a... More
