I went here for a meal with my daughter and really enjoyed it,the staff were very friendly and the food was great,my only negative would be that my daughter is vegetarian and there was only a couple of choices (no pasta dish which we thought was unusual) We would defiantly go here again as it it only a few miles...

Good local beers are served and the food is excellent. The food portions are very generous - my chicken goujon starter was sufficient for most pubs main courses. My wife... More

But there again I'd be spoiled too often. Four of us thoroughly enjoyed our Saturday lunch trip. Excellent Theakston's Best (and I've tried many over the last 40 years or so - this is up there with the best!) and sublime pub food (cooked by a proper (young) chef rather than an enthusiastic amateur) - and doesn't it show!!
