I had to rip the beef apart in order to eat, a regular knife wouldn't even cut through it. We were packed in at the table so tight it was difficult to use cutlery anyway. The pub had come highly recommended so was a little...disappointedMore

As I was quite apprehensive about our stay having looked at some photos, I was hugely relieved as we stepped through the door into the pub. A warm welcome in a busy pub. The smell of the food was so inviting. It was definitely an...inviting atmosphere. My children and I were thrilled with the room, plenty of space and a very modern feel. Evening meal was really tasty and yhe breakfast was delicious. Well worth the money and visit.More

There were 8 of us so we called ahead for the table reserved immediately. Excellent service and food with a good choice for children as well. Reasonably priced

We stayed here with our Motorhome because they are in the BritStops book. The car park is smallish, but easily accessible. But there was room enough for us and another motorhome. We had a meal in the evening. I must compliment all the staff, all...of which were quite young. They were far more professional then a lot of older staff I have encountered in other establishments. They were happy and smiling and nothing was too much trouble, and the restaurant was full. The menu is extensive and both our meals were very nice. Would recommend.More

We go at least once a week and always warmly welcomed by Shaun, Claire and the staff. Great food cooked by Dave with the same excellent quality takeaways all through lockdown. Highly recommend you try here. They even do a great B&B

It's a nice spot, but more suited to adults than children, in my opinion. outside areas are not really enclosed and seem to be more suited to outside drinks, etc.
