I had looked at the menu on line prior to visiting and there are several different items and some prices that are different to the actual menu available. There is actually a lot more on offer, including gluten free items, and there are daily specials on the blackboard. When we visited there seemed to be a large group spread over... More

Had a meal here with friends & chose the Festive menu. Sorry to say that the soup (vegetable and red lentil) was over salted and over seasoned, I left most of it. The main course of turkey and trimmings was hot with a good portion of meat and a selection of vegetables and was tasty. The sticky toffee pudding came... More

I love local to this pub. It's average food,no pool table or darts board. Me and my girlfriend went for dinner one Sunday, there wasn't a lot of people in and yet we waited just over an hour for food,wouldn't of minded but the quality of food was poor. Wouldn't go again,would rather go to the punch bowl.

This was better than I expected , rooms well furnished with private bathroom and tv - the food choice was great and delicious . They look after you and the pub is quiet enough to enjoy a relaxing evening

Food OK so long as you want piping hot microwaved food. If you are looking for home made go elsewhere

Nice place inside but the menu is a bit hit and miss. The mushroom dish we had to start looked great, well presented, a bit bland but not bad. However my wife was served a few lettuce leaves with some prawn skewers thrown on top. The prawns weren't hot and they weren't cold, but they were definitely rubbery as hell.... More
