We went for meal sat. 1st Nov.14 to celebrate a birthday.It was totally obvious the waitresses were untrained regarding table service.Bar staff had no basic knowledge of wines. Presentation of food was sub standard, overpriced and unappertising. You eat with your eyes to start with. You are greeted at the front door with a cloud of smoke from smokers crowding... More

We had a meal on my birthday , me and other half had steak cooked... More

Nice off the main road pub. (Too) large selection of food all very tasty. Service and reception was very friendly but slow. This maybe the fact that we're used to fast lane living and is much more lax here. Starters 45mins wait. Frozen veg was a big put off but the pie (large) and lamb shank where delicious.

We only had a very brief stay here and chose it for the location as I was spending the day at the BSY Group which is less than half a mile away so for location purposes this was perfect. The pub itself is very warm and welcoming. We arrived at 11pm after a very long drive, which we had notified... More
