Sunday lunch here, with our sons. Staff were welcoming, and I noticed the extensive menu of homely food. I had roast lamb, and the meat was very tender. I would visit again, but my only quibble was that I prefer my veg served separately, instead of all placed on my plate. However, that is a small detail.

Been here quite a few times, really decent quality food, good service, good menu choice and a fantastic beer garden. Really good for a lunch with a partner or in a group.

Booked a table here for dinner before we went to see Jack Whitehall, food was very quick to come out and was very nice & hot. Nice relaxed atmosphere, if I didn't live 65 miles away I would dine here again.

Regrettably. I wishes I have never booked , no effort was made to crest any sort of valentines night atmosphere . the waitress looked as if she didn't want to be there and made no effort to look after us I had to get our own drinks after waiting 10 minutes we had to chase to order our food after...

Ate recently and all good but we thought the service was actually rushed and a bit too quick. Nice interior and great service with drinks and food but all over far too quickly.

Been here many times although over last 6-12 months. Went for Sunday roast yesterday and potatoes were roasted thinly cut and small and only 3/4 potatoes . Cauliflower cheese etc all extra not worth the money. Also the time before my friend received appalling service and food as the vegetables came looking like they had been sat on the side... More
