The food here is amazing and the surroundings for the pub itself are lovely however what stole the show for me was the amazingly attentive the staff were. I literally have never received service as good EVER! 10 out of 10

Sometimes one wonders how restaurants get their high ratings. In this case their position is richly deserved. The pub has a great atmosphere. Warm and friendly. The manager and staff are welcoming and attentive. The food is very good indeed. Home made and plentiful. One of our party was in a wheelchair and they made her visit as easy as... More

In a word, simply superb (I know!). Service-always there, never obtrusive. Two young, mobile and voluble girls wisely served ahead of the game by an almost psychic staff. Food-excellent particularly mine, the others in in the party had some say but I know my ham hock terrine and game suet pudding was tops. Accommodation-seating for nine of us of all... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for several years now and it is always excellent. The steak and kidney pie is great and the sweets are out of this world. Staff are always friendly and helpful and the ambience is warm and welcoming. Well worth the 45 minute drive from Darlington .

...worthy of its Trip Advisor ranking. Welcomed as soon as we arrived, the staff talk with real enthusiasm for the food on offer, entices you to try new things. The food definitely lived up to the reviews, my hubby had game pudding and I opted for the steak & kidney pie. Offered with a choice of veg, all came hot... More

Recommended by a friend - and what an excellent pub. Friendly, good pub atmosphere, attentive (but not too quick) service. The food is wonderful. We both had fish, but don't doubt the meat is just as good. And the apple pie - just out of the oven, juicy apple, light crust with just the right amount of crispness ... I... More

Fell onto this purely by chance and we were bowled over by the food and hospitality. Cracking pub, if only we had something similar where we live in Norfolk. Really appetising menu and food was superb. Also lots of nice touches in this cosy english pub such as spare reading glasses etc at the bar.

We arrived at this pub a little earlier than it was due to open but the staff kindly let us in. The pub itself is very welcoming and cosy with the choice of sitting in the bar area or the restaurant which looked very well set out. The selection of food was good with plenty of choice for vegetarians, and... More
