We called in for lunch as we were passing. Huge choice from the menu, from full on meal to light bite. Genuinely helpful and friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend this place. Many thanks. We'll be back.

We went for drink and something to nibble in the afternoon the other day, we had a platter and a bottle of wine. We chose three items from the platter menu and a bottle of the house wine for the total cost was £18.95, the sun was shining which made the day even better. If I had a criticism, it... More

We visited this pub/restaurant with family who were locals. On arrival the car park was busy for 7.30 on a Thursday. The pub was buzzing, glad they'd booked as it was 'steak night'. We were given two menus, but opted for the steak night deal, which was two courses and a bottle of wine per couple - £28.95. Being pescatarian... More

I visited with a group of friends. The tables in the restaurant are tightly packed. It was like an obstacle course when you wanted to go to the toilet as you were weaving through diners then staff coming through. I had a pasta and chicken dish. The chicken tastes ok but the pasta sauce was tasteless. The garlic bread was... More

Hi Victoria, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit.

We felt very welcome on arrival, the rooms were pleasant and recently renovated with nice shower rooms. We had a double and a single and though the single room was a little small it was well equipped. We went down to the bar and although busy we were given a table whilst we waited for a table in the restaurant.... More
