We enjoyed our visit and the food was great excellent as were the staff. I found the menu a bit restricted in options.

Nice pub but for food and drink we preffered the other pub in Yoxall. This one beer choices not as good and didnt rate the lunch menu. Just had drinks instead and left. Lovely beer garden though! Massive!

We visited this pub on the way home from a trip to Staffordshire . Had been there frequently many years ago when standards slipped so had not been recently. On this occasion the landlady was very helpful in fitting us in although tables were all reserved for later on. We chose the daily special which was steak, veg and a... More

Came across this pub after a trip to Fradley Junction. Looked great from the outside but we were met with an atmosphere as cold as the landlady. She was very abrupt and shouldn't be in customer service. Food was nice enough but tarnished by her behaviour... maybe why it was so quiet on a Saturday lunchtime.

It looked welcoming and promised good pub food . How wrong could I get . In fact , it was like a trip back in time when food could be cooked that badly ! The starter was straight from a cheap food service company and the main was cooked by someone who didn't know how to cook and just added... More

Visited for lunch, four people. Waited at the bar to be seated, ignored. When eventually spoken to, asked where we'd sat, because we hadn't booked. Then we explained at 2 empty tables, with no reserved signs she told us as we had not booked we'd have to wait. The atmosphere was non existent. Customers seemed to just sit no one... More

Second visit to this establishment and how disappointed we were. Both my husband and myself opted for the Aberdeen Angus burger off the specials board. When the meal came it was swimming in grease so you couldn't even hold the burger as the bun was that soggy. So were the chips, almost like they hadn't been left to drain. Needless... More
