Sorry to the previous poster. You thought the pub wasn't full but the staff were, in fact, catering for our party of 31 in the restaurant end of the pub. It had been booked for one month for my 70th birthday, with choices of 3 courses of food handed in last Thursday, and the food, service and kindness of staff... More

My husband and I met up with our friends here for an early tea last night. Last night being a Saturday. After the fiasco of having to move tables twice, we eventually were seated in the bar area as we had our dog with us. After pondering the menu, we ordered at the bar. However my husband was told that... More

Hi and thanks for your review. It obviously causes great concern when I see a low score, in fact you are the first person out of the last 18 reviews that has scored us below a 4. I have sat down with the front of house and the chefs to investigate the issue. Firstly you were sat on a table... More

I went last week with a couple of my friends. I ordered the deluxe burger and my friends ordered the steak. None of us managed to finish what was on our plates! My friends absolutely loved their triple cooked chips - we have never seen chips as big in our lives! Locals were chatty and friendly. Will definitely go back.

Agree with other reviews re food however after ordering gammon 5 mins later informed they had "run out" which was odd esp as it was a Friday lunchtime so ordered steak instead which was fine. Ordered a tea which arrived in the form of a tea in a thick coffee cup. Most eating places usually serve in a tea pot... More

Hi there! Thanks for your review. We are thrilled you like our food! We sadly had run out of gammon on Friday, its a very popular dish and sometimes we get caught out. Please accept our apologises. Yes our tea does come in a 'tea mug' as its part of the branded beverage range we use. We do have tea... More

What brilliant food at this pub/restaurant .... Lovely menu , All 6 of us had something different and everyone enjoyed what they had ... The food was plentiful and very tasty ... Proper home cooked food not your typical manufactured pub chain rubbish .... Very cheap as well for what you got - would highly recommend this place x
