As the title says really, how you can charge £6 for 3 tiny scoops of utterly disgusting ice cream is beyond me, (strawberry tasted like a McDonald's milkshake frozen). Steaks were far from cooked the way we asked, starters were really tiny, I mean, how can you mess up a tomato and mozzarella salad for crying out loud! The last... More

We stopped off for lunch on our way through to Norfolk and had two very nice ploughman's on slates with extra chips! We had a very friendly waitress and a nice chat with the owner. All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable stopover. Very impressed with cleanliness (including toilets) and high standards throughout - food, ambience and appropriate background... More

If there was a 0 star I would give it we drove past this place and thought we would go in have a drink and enquire for a party of 30 people for a 21st birthday. I asked at the bar could I use the toilet and the young girl said of course no problem. on coming out of the... More

So myself and my wife had our first evening out in over a year and we heard about this place through friends at my local gym. First impression was great, very inviting and from the outside looks lovely. Once we got inside the place did not disappoint. We were approached by the owners who were very welcoming. We ordered bread... More

Can't understand the negative reviews as we had a fabulous evening there. The proprietor and his son were charming, we had a great table, the steaks we chose were delicious, and they made us a great salad instead of the usual mushroom and onion ring routine. The prosecco was delicious and very reasonable and the atmosphere great. We would highly... More

The place looks so inviting as you approach. The interior has a superb inglenook type fireplace. There the good points end. Should have walked, the place empty. The Waitress was indifferent to bloody minded with a sneer in place of a smile. Three meals were chosen only to be told, "Its off", or "aint got no Ham, so want extra... More

Was greeted by two very different characters at the bar when checking in. One extremely lovely helpful bar manager and one very rude and agressive owner who was shouting at the staff in front of me. He's definitely in the wrong job!! I was shown to my room which was very average but the thing that stood out the most... More

Lovely pub/restaurant with a great atmosphere. Food was well presented and tasty but portions were small and, I felt, a little overpriced. Not rustic, more nouvelle cuisine - this is an observation, not a criticism. Would recommend.

Before writing a review I took the time to look over the others to see if it was just me being picky but it seems not. I came here with some friends and found the place to be quite flat. There was no atmosphere in the place which I suppose isnt surprising as we were the only ones there. I... More
