My wife and I visited this evening on the off-chance after work. We were told there was an (understandable) hiatus in food orders off the specials board until 6pm but didn't mind waiting. Our food came out earlier than anticipated and was excellent. I went for the faggots and my wife went for the Rib Eye steak. It was all... More

Good food and a very nice Sunday Roast - Carvery style - well worth a visit and dog friendly also, so ideal for the pooch. It gets busy so always a good sign and the food did not disappoint!

The majority of reviews appear to concern the Carvery so thought I would add my review of breakfast. Super friendly pub with relaxed vibe. Staff are attentive and proficient. Ate with a group of four friends, two of whom ate meat. Myself and a friend had the veggie breakfast and it is excellent. The veggie sausages are my favourite and... More

Food was tasteless, a very disappointing meal . I didn't have high expectations but I was still very disappointed. I hardly ate anything as I found it so awful. The service however was excellent and the atmosphere relaxed.

The service was very good and the cauliflower soup was very creamy. The seafood platter was very filling with the chips and so was the sticky toffee pudding. They run quiz and music nights.

Very busy as getting near to Christmas, but shown to a nice table for two, and given menus and drinks orders taken. Very good menu with some quite... More

The party took place in a private room upstairs. Everything was very well organised and the food was excellent. The staff were very attentive. As always the only downside was the cost of the drinks which was very expensive. Overall the venue was very nice and I would recommend it.

Went there on recommendation for a Sunday roast lunch. when we were staying nearby Was a little disappointed with quality of food. Veg was not hot and meat not tender . and well cooked. Seemed to have been standing for a while. Thought it expensive for what we got. Perhaps the locals are less critical as it was very busy... More
