Good service

Considering they've only been here a few weeks the owners seem to be doing everything right. It's a strange sort of building, only seems to have a back not a front but don't let that put you off, the beer is excellent, sourced fairly locally and sensibly chosen - in an area where people will have... read more

Fantastic meal, all courses were superb service was pleasant and un-rushed. We had a variety of courses and everyone was pleased with both flavour and presentation of the plates

Nice. Pub very friendly with a good welcome, nice fire to sit by. Food was nice except Yorkshire was burnt. They did replace this for one of the people which was less overdone, but did not eat mine as charred. Lemon posset desert was very nice. Will try again. Downside I heard one table for a vegetarian option they could... More

A nice lunch for 2. Beautiful wine, perfect portions, priced perfectly to let you know that it is value for money. 3 courses, well presented plates...not the typical la dee da pub grub...you can tell that pride is taken in what is served. Thank you!

I went with my husband to his Christmas party and I did enjoy the food and the service. The only downfall is they don't have too many options for vegetarians. But the one they got are well presented and good. The staff were good.

We had Sunday lunch here recently, we had high hopes. Arrived at 1.00 pm to a completely empty restaurant/eating area, just a few people at the bar. Oh well we thought perhaps it's early! Some of us ordered the roast beef and one of us ordered the battered fish & chips. Firstly the roast beef meal was average at best,... More

First time diners. Staff cold and unwelcoming. Bar crowded, awkward for getting drinks. Bread lovely but not enough and only very small amount of butter. Chips may be triple fried but not by the chef. Obviously bought in. Cod slightly suspiciously uniform in shape and size. Gooey chocolate desert very good but again skimpy on the clotted cream.
