We had a superb lunch at this 'Inn/ restaurant on Sunday with around 20 of us. The menu choice was wonderful and the food served lived up to the expectations. Our 3 course menu with coffee afterwards was superb! Lovely to have fresh colourful vegetables with full accompaniments to main courses. The staff who served our table were just delightful... More

We are looking to move to the area so we tried out this pub for a drink and loved the choice of ales. So we visited again for Sunday lunch which was excellent, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the food excellent. We then visited for an evening meal and drinks and once again it was great. The owner... More

We had a very enjoyable evening! The restaurant is beautiful with lovely decor! It's got a very warm and cozy feeling and we felt very welcome! Amazing food at reasonable prices! Staff were very friendly and nothing seemed to be a problem!

we booked our table for 7pm because we had a 4 year old with us, we were still waiting for our food to arrive at 8pm. The food itself was very good but if they want to keep customers they seriously need to get their act together.

Went for Sunday lunch and will go back for an evening meal from the A la Carte. Mainly because the lunch was good but cooked from a chef's perspective not a 'Sunday lunch customer' one (e.g. Using Sirloin instead of Rib for the beef - good but not the 'authentic' Sunday lunch meal). The starter was good and the dessert... More

Went here for my mum's birthday. It was just the 2 of us, early evening. Service was attentive and friendly and the food was just great! I had the 'drunken bull' very well cooked with lots of flavor. Mum had beer battered fish, chips and mushy peas. The batter melted in the mouth. The dining room is a nice space,... More

Eight cousins and their partners from near and overseas met for Sunday lunch, the room where we were seated was just the right size with a door to the outdoor seating and garden with a bouncy castle for children.The only downside was because there was a bench seat all along one wall our tables were set horse shoe style meaning...
