Good lunch visit and I have gone back for dinner which is a bit more expensive but still good. With a hip replacement the place is not as good as the greengage as there is no access toilet.

We visited this pub as a big group of us to have a catch up and a bite to eat. The food was very good couldn't fault any of it but the staff weren't very friendly at all. They didn't seem like they knew what they were doing, quiet rude and even though we gave them a list of what... More

A chance visit late on a Saturday afternoon revealed a nice comfortable pub with helpful staff, reasonable range of beers and hot tasty food with generous portions. Pub wasn't overly busy and we were warmly greeted as soon as we arrived. Our group had Steaks, Steak and Ale pie and Cod and Chips. Meal came within 20 mins, nice and... More

Nice warm pub on a miserable night. We had gone for a cheap meal out and chose from 'Specials Menu'. Good food and good value. There appeared to be plenty of 'specials' available all day and also for senior citizens at lunchtime. Staff all very pleasant and helpful.

A group of us popped in here on the off chance. We were warmly greeted and made welcome. We chose a nice table out of the way to sit and chat. We ordered from the varied menu. All our meals came quickly were hot and very enjoyable. Dessert was delicious too. Good value for money. Will definitely visit again

The food is OK and good value. Typical pub grub, you get what you pay for. The Sunday roast is a fairly valued meal and better than some other local establishments. The table waiting staff are very helpful, composed when busy and very courteous but the bar maid I found very rude. She was rude to a member of staff... More

Stopped in here for dinner. Excellent value and the food was delicious. The staff were very friendly. My only complaint is that there is no service at your table. You have to go to the bar to place your food and drinks order.... really don't like this system. Think it would add a lot of value to the experience of... More

This is our local and since we moved into the area about 18 months ago we have visited maybe 7 or 8 times. I have never posted a review before but following a particularly good experience on our last visit I thought I would give a little boost to their Tripadvisor rating. One of the questions Tripadvisor ask is, is... More
