Visited twice on consecutive days

Pub able to accommodate a rather large party without booking on two consecutive evening visits ( is that a bad sign?). Efficient service, we had one small complaint with food quality on the first visit - quickly rectified. Good value, convenient fir what we needed and average quality all round.

Come here regularly as live just down the road. Over the last 2 months the standard of service and quality of food has deteriorated.

The broccoli was all brown, sent it back and had the same rubbish served again. With the promise of a new manager, was asked to give them yet another try...will... More

Nice and comfortable, good value for money, food very enjoyable, large selection. Our kids enjoy it here as you have the outside play area, also the menu is very reasonably priced, all main meals are two for one. It really is ideal for a family meal.

Great food, great service. With 2 for 1 on all main courses how could you complain. I had the steak and my husband had the ribs, both meals were cooked well and very tasty.

The Stonemasons was just down the road from the Woodleigh b&b we were staying at. The food in this pub was very good quality and was cooked just right, the staff were friendly and welcoming
