We ate here a little while ago, but we are inspired to write this review on reading the unusually positive comments made by others. We felt we should share our horrible experience of lunch at this pub. On arriving in the pub, we received a rather unfriendly greeting from the man behind the bar, but were shown to our table...

En route home after a disastrous overnight hotel stop elsewhere, looking for a decent lunch, we revisited this town centre pub where we'd had a good meal some years before. We had an excellent Sunday lunch, supplied at moderate cost, and without a prior booking. Helpful and welcoming staff, in spite of it being very busy. Unpretentious, good solid English... More

Only stayed for one night it was very clean and comfortable. The bed was a bit old it had the old fashioned springs so creaked a bit and every time you moved you rolled together. The bathroom could do with an overhaul and maybe some non slip lino would be better. The breakfast was perfectly cooked to order so you... More

Staff really helpful And friendly, pub busy for a Wednesday, good food menu with a lot of choice. Able to dine in the restaurant or bar area. Good selection of drinks. Food was tasty -good grub, nothing special but homely & friendly. Dont be put off if the curtains are closed at 8pm!

The landlord was really helpful, friendly without being familiar and the food was proper English pub meals at good prices. My Mother tried the freshly caught trio of Cornish fish, pronouncing it delicious, while I went for sauteed mushrooms in cream and garlic to start, followed by steak, ale and mushroom pie. Nothing fancy, just decent food, sensible pricing and... More

The evening meal was excellent. Very friendly staff except for stressy landlady who couldnt wait for us to finish our evening meal before she laid up for breakfast. Beds comfy. TV remote u/s, bathroom dirty floor. Wouldnt stay for more than 2 nights. Its a pub with rooms, not a Hotel. coffe very good !

I stayed here for one night on business. My room was spacious although a little cold as I couldnt close the window properly. Ensuite bathroom was large and spacious. Evening meal was good, no complaints at all. Most of all the staff and landlord were great - they made us feel very welcomed.
