We booked a table for 12 for a friends birthday. Excellent service & food. The staff were very good. The place has been recently revamped inside & out and looks brilliant. The garden will be a great place to be in the summer sun.

Pre-booked a table for 6 for my Mother's birthday on a Tuesday night, and was looking forward to visiting as we hadn't visited for many years. Upon arrival, the pub was quiet (but it was tuesday) so was served immediately. However, the young lad behind the bar forgot to take the tops off our lemonade bottles which was unfortunate. Food...

This establishment is very close to the wedding venue we were visiting, and we only stayed one night. We found the premises clean and very comfortable, with all facilities provided, including en suite and wifi (though the area does not have good mobile reception). Our breakfast was a full English, freshly cooked to our order, supplimented by a wide variety... More

Booked in advance meal for 10 for Mother's Day. We had to wait over half an hour for our table with no where to sit or stAnd other than in everyone else's way, leaving us feeling frustrated and uncomfortable at being in everyone's way. Mother's Day menu was a combination of Carvery or basic menu choices. The food was ok,... More

Me and my friends went for a Sunday carvery here and the food was lovely, it couldn't be faulted. The service was a different story. There were 5/6 visible staff but it was the slowest service I have encountered in a long time. We waited at least 20 minutes between being given the menu and being asked for our order,... More

The staff were welcoming and friendly and the restaurant was clean and the chairs comfortable. We had a fixed price two course lunch which was very pleasant but the choices were very limited. Parking was a problem even though the pub was nearly empty because of the cars parked in the car park for the car dealership next door.
