Lukewarm soup of the day, potato and leek, Eton mess cheesecake, strawberry cheesecake with bits of meringue and a dollop of whipped cream ona piece of slate! Can't restaurants afford plates anymoy? However, the toilets were excellent and the musak was very good. Perhaps we just picked a bad day!

Called in for a beer or two and there was a nice atmosphere and the ale was good too. A choice of local beers and the usual selection of lagers, and good service

Enjoyed the pub and was looking forward to dinner but was very disappointed with the food. Steak was fatty and inconsistently cooked. Vegetables were not cooked. Steak and mushroom pie was mince with no mushrooms.
