Have been here 3 times and each visit I have tried something vegetarian. They have a good variety of veggie options, however I found the Risotto to be quite bland and sickly, perhaps a personal preference but not a fan of bright yellow food! The burger was delicious and the staff were more than happy to provide a "doggy bag"!... More

Food was piled up very unappetisingly on plate and covered in a very oily gravy. Mashed potato was cold, Yorkshire pudding doughy! Greens chewy. Parsnips and carrots limp. Waiter returned it to the kitchen and head chef agreed it was unacceptable.

Booked a table, requested by the wood burner in the bar and they kindly obliged. We both ordered pork belly which was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection....lovely soft pork and a piece of wonderful tasty crackling 😋 with creamy mash and veg...complimented with a nice apple sauce and gravy. Excellent! Husband then had an equally tasty apple and shortbread... More

Booked a table for Sunday lunch last weekend. The staff were very welcoming and kept on top everything without being too in your face. Food is very good with plenty to choose from. We hope to return in the near future.

We visited with friends for the first time on 15th October. It was a Saturday night and the place seemed really busy, but we were soon shown to our table and the service was brisk and very friendly. Although the choice for vegetarians is a bit limited, as it is in many places, the meal was extremely good. A lot... More

A splendid venue chosen by our friends that remains welcoming. Service is friendly with good humour ( needed when attending us), good cooking with a menu that is a little different to the norm. Portion size adequate buy could be a tad bigger is my only slightly adverse comment other wise five stars all day long.

Thank Hams62
