Staying local for a couple of nights, found this place online as we were searching for somewhere to eat. Phone and booked a table so I'd recommend doing that as when we arrived they were busy. Staff were friendly and welcoming. We were served drinks as we walked in and then shown to our table within a couple of minutes.... More

Nothing bad to say about this place at all. The food was good quality and attractively presented, service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. It's a shame there weren't more veggie options to choose from but that didn't stop me enjoying a delicious meal :) We'd definitely eat here again.

Came highly recommended by the legend that is Milo Twigge! We weren't disappointed. Lovely home cooked Sunday roast, beef cooked to perfection, friendly staff and customers, well kept real ale. What's not to like?

We visited on Pie Night (Thursdays). First visit and so far our last, but we may try again when confident to do so!!!!! My steak pie had hardly any meat in it and my partners veggie pie was tasteless. Portions could have been bigger. Nicely presented however!! Service is good at this pub, but who wants to make a fuss... More

Our steak pies contain a minimum 8oz of large chunks of steak, we hand make them on the premises so I cannot understand how this could happen. Obviously if we had been made aware of this issue we would have looked into it and replaced your pie with one to our usual standard. As to your partners pie being tasteless... More

Visited this place after a full day at Alton Towers so we were really ready for a nice meal and sit down. There were so many restaurant options in the area on TripAdvisor that it was quite difficult narrowing it down to one. It happened to be pie and pint night and the place was full.

Turned up at the pub at 8.15pm. Was told there wasn't a table till 9pm. Waited till 9pm then was told they were sorry but couldn't offer us a meal as they were full. We were already sitting at a table in the bar area and other people were eating in the bar area. I get the impression this being... More

I am very sorry to hear you were so dissatisfied with your visit. Just to share our side of the story. You arrived, as you say, at 8.15pm - both our dining room and snug room were full at this time and we had more bookings to come in. We had been turning away reservations all day as couldn't accommodate... More
