Met with a friend for lunch on a Saturday. Pub has a cosy feel, nice and clean, a friendly warm welcome from staff and they were very attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Varied menu and tasty food - we will be back!

Great service and a good menu. The food was well cooked hot and prepared to an obviously high stand. Staff were attentive and greeted us properly as we arrived. My portion of ribs was to die for

We were a bit disappointed to find that dogs weren't allowed in the pub only in the heated garden and pods. We received a very warm welcome from the team, however, we did wait quite a while for anything we had ordered whether it be...food, the bill or drinks. That being said this is a lovely place for a long wholesome pub grub lunch and if you are happy in the cute heated pods feel free to take your fury friends.More

We met for dinner at this pub and as always had an excellent meal and time together. The menu has a great choice of tasty, attractive and well priced food at a location that is easy to get to. I started with the potato skins...followed by the chicken, ham and leek pie (out of the six of us, four opted for that!) and finished with the sticky toffee pud. An excellent meal! Will return soon!More

We booked a lunch with friends and booked one of the "Pods" it was perfect as we were meeting up after several years, so the chance to talk to each other with no distractions was great. The food was superb, plus the staff and service...were impeccable. So a big thank you for a lovely lunch experience, we will defiantly be back.More

Restaurant looks very appealing from the outside. Inside not so much. The food was cold, bland and the gammon. Well I wished I’d taken a picture. A burnt old end piece of gammon that I wouldn’t of given to a dog. After staff noticed we...hadn’t eaten the food they sincerely apologies and we paid 50% of the bill. They genuinely seemed embarrassed and really tried to rectify the issue so thank you for that. Unfortunately we will not return for food however will visit in the summer for a drinks outside.More

Although we turned up without a reservation we were quickly accommodated in one of the pub’s heated outdoor pods which, on a foul weather day, was a treat in itself! The service from waitress Anna was absolutely superb with drinks and food arriving smartly with...a smile and genuine enthusiasm to engage with my old Dad’s love of chatting. The racks of ribs were as good as they always are and we’ll be back very soon for more of the same!!More

Great food, very accommodating staff and all really friendly which makes such a difference. Well managed. Dining huts in garden are a super addition. Well worth a visit.

Lovely staff (Hannah, Niamh and Mitch) good recommendations and attentive. Ordered some small plates to share, cheese balls were okay but somewhat bland, sweet potato fries over cooked and stodgy. Garlic bread as expected. Food very overpriced. All in all okay, good for drinks but...wouldn’t recommend food. The staff really made our trip - would come back the service and to try mains.More

There is quite a bit of parking, and an overflow next to a place where walking trail starts. Even when very busy, parking is pretty good at this country pub.
