I always make my hubby and his family eat here because I know they won't complain about it like they do about most other pubs we might go to - but tonight something wasn't quite right? The food took forever, it wasn't remotely busy, it...More

We have loved coming here over many years. It was always clean, well kept, good choice and value with lovely staff. The staff are still lovely, although we didn't recognise anyone. They'd all changed. But, it was grubby. The carpet needs cleaning, the tables were...More

The last review I left was full of praise and food was beautiful, but yesterday we were all disappointed with our food. I had cheese and onion baguette, however it was missing the onion. The chips on most of the plates were undercooked but we...More

For a chain, the food is surprisingly good - obviously not gourmet - but certainly lashings of good honest comfort food. They must be doing something right, as despite the pub being well off the beaten track, it was packed on a Tuesday night. The...More
