We were over charged the previous week for a bottle of water not consumed and presented the receipt when we returned a week later to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff apologised for over charging us and refunded immediately. Food was good and staff friendly

Two families meeting for lunch. 4 adults, 4 children, booked in advance. The service was really slow. One of our party has a serious dairy allergy so we asked the staff about the choices we were considering. They returned with an impenetrable food allergy binder that they threw on the table leaving us to decode whether the various options were... More

Five friends met for an evening meal ... Very disappointing as one one member of bar staff on duty and one waitress! Service was slow although waitress was polite and friendly, had to get up a lot to ask for things and look for the waitress! Food ok but nothing to write home about. There are better restaurants in the... More

I understand that new management has just taken over. I have never been to this pub before and was invited to have a business meeting there. Mark the new manager, was extremely accommodating, courteous and professional. The service was great, and a big shout out to Harry who was our server for drinks.

Food was excellent as witnessed by 15 empty plates. However, service not so good as nobody came to clear empty plates and we had to clear them ourselves. Also, only one working coffee machine serving only one coffee at a time (same as free coffee machne at Waitrose), so took a long time to make 15 coffees and some were... More

This is a local pub to us we have frequented on many occasions. I have to say when we arrived I was very disappointed- the staff ignored us despite us trying to catch their eye - particularly the young man wearing the blue shirt who I assume was a duty manager - I had booked online as I always do...

I have been a number of times for lunch which is of a good standard, visited today just for drinks and enjoyed the setting.

Went back to this venue having had a really good experience previously. Unfortunately, it was not the same. The soup was lukewarm and the mexican bean burger inedilbe due to over cooking. Not enough front of house staff to cope with the customers and food took too long to arrive. Will not be returning.
