Me and my partner came here for a little luxury for our first year anniversary and we weren't disappointed, the whole place was decorated in such a way it felt cozy but not overwhelming. The lights on the branches on the ceiling were lovely. We sat in the window overlooking the car park but beyond there it's just grass land... More

Good choice of food on the menu. We decided on mussels between us for a starter. The mussels were fine but the hot bun with them had a piece in it that was approx 25% of the bun and was like a piece of rock. My partner had the chicken burger and had to send the pot of BBQ beans... More

Asked for a table in the conservatory. Empty table for 6, 2 x2 empty tables could have been put together... More

Living with 5 miles we have eaten here on a number of occasions over recent years, most recently last weekend for lunch with family from outside the area. Nobody left a single morsel. Our appetites varied from moderate to ravenous and the menu choice offered a good range of options to match. Standards at some places fluctuate over time but... More

Loads of fish and sauce and just right amount of potato. Served steaming hot. It was deeeeeeelicious! Crumble for pud. Buttery and yummy. Really lovely meal. No complaints. Will be... More

The restaurant is beautiful, homely & welcoming. The staff friendly. The food delicious. The prices on the standard are a little higher than some places but with it. We ate from the Sunday lunch menu which is reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning.

It been a while since we have visited......its certainly a different Pub at Christmas...the Christmas Decorations they do are amazing, so tasteful and to such a high standard and not to mention the upside down tree - that was just weird & wonderful. Some new faces to the staff from our last visit but Phil the Manager was still there... More
