Good value food on the 2 for 1 deal however a tad expensive if dining alone or odd numbers. Can be very busy especially on fine weather days, may have to wait a bit for food. The waiting staff are excellent even when busy.

We visited the restaurant last night as we are staying on a nearby caravan site, it was very busy which is usually a good sign, Not So. My husband went to the bar as we could only see one waitress serving all the tables, he was ages waiting to order,, the bar staff were stressed as not enough of them.... More

I can honestly say that this was the worst meal I have had for a very long time. The excuses were being given even before we had sat down. Understaffed the waiter said, so really I should have expected the worse. After a very long wait for the drinks, the starters to be fair weren't too bad it was just... More

I can't tell you much about this pub as we could not bear to stay after walking in and looking around. The place was quiet but looked like a bomb had hit it. Food all over the floor, staff with disgusting aprons and not even a smile. We opened our menus which were on our tables and they too were... More

The staff did all they could to ensure we were ok 100% for the service but it a shame that the food lets... More

My friend and I stopped off here on a gorgeous sunny day after attending a bike rally nearby. Beautiful location for a beer garden with a river right next to it and a huge amount of Emperor dragonflies in lovely blues and greens for the nature lovers! Huge grassy area for kids to play and you can take dogs in... More

Stayed overnight rooms were good value. Large and plenty of facilities. 241 menu which is ok not great. But well worth it as rooms are great value including a good breakfast. Had a very nice weekend. Lady on breakfast was pleasant. Shame you have to cross the road to get into the garden little worrying with children.
