...went on Sunday about 3.30pm. I can certainly see why several others have complained about the ordering system and subsequent payment, there certainly wouldn't be enough staff at busy times...that said it wasn't that busy when we went, the service was perfectly pleasant, the waitress took the order at our table and when I enquired about how the Sunday roast...

Have been here a few times and the service is always excellent and the food pretty good. Tonight I had the fish and chips and it was excellent. Crisp batter, light flaky cod. Very tasty. Cooked to perfection. Paul, the waiter, was efficient, friendly and helpful. It was early evening so the restaurant wasn't very busy and there was a... More

Having visited here just for drinks a few times,I had noticed how understaffed this place is. This evening we decided to go and sit in the garden for a drink followed by an early evening meal,hoping that we would escape the busiest period.

I hate to leave a poor review but we had a terrible experience, almost all of it went from bad to worse. It was a Bank Holiday Monday, not too busy but lacking in staff. We waited for our order to be taken, we waited for our drinks order at the bar, we then waited longer to have our cocktails... More

Have spent many summer evenings here over the last 10 years and normally it hits the spot. Not this time. Everything was a bit lacklustre. Food was cold. Staff were uninterested. Management were not very well rehearsed with dealing with complaints. Witnessed many tables complaining. Such a shame

In the summer enjoy the expansive, well laid, beer garden. Winter? Stay indoors withering real fires and cosy olde worlde coach house feel. Food is of an established pub menu format, but good value, well cooked, hit and plentiful.

This pub is full of history and character, with great pub grub suiting any day of the week. The beer garden on a sunny warm day is the best.
