We enjoyed a good meal at this pub/restaurant (2 steaks and a bottle of wine for £22.95). The staff are really friendly and the whole place has character. Would certainly eat there again.

We stopped by on the way home for lunch there was a few of us. The waitress was miserable and unprofessional. Wouldn't have hurt to crack a smile! The food was great. Piping hot and plenty of it.

Hadn't been here for years and decided to go for Sunday lunch, wish we hadn't bothered, original plan was to have a main and dessert but the main took so long to arrive we changed our minds. From sitting down at the table to the meal arriving took 55 minutes, it wasn't exactly busy either. The meal itself (roast beef)... More

We visited today for a quick lunchtime sandwich and wished we hadn't bothered. Ordered two different variations of the stone baked flatbread - stone being the operative word! The bacon and Brie flatbread was particularly hard and stale tasting and the bacon was also tough. The chilli chicken flatbread was filled with what looked and tasted like the value brand... More

Brilliant event for all, had dinner in the restaurant for steak night which was lovely as usual, had Cajun chicken which was lovely juicy and tender, and a medium steak which was cooked to perfection and only waited around 10 mins with a full restaurant well done guys

Food very poor especially starter of Prawn cocktail: watery sauce lacking taste from being put on very wet lettuce. Small tasteless frozen prawns. Then on top drizzled balsamic vinegar....why? To make it look pretty! Asked for ground pepper not available small bowl of pink peppercorns produced which had been "crushed badly not ground". Main course battered cod and chips fish... More
