Great little pub

This is a great pub. Staff friendly and polite. Every time I've been it has been busy but it's never seemed a problem as the food served has always been of very high quality :0)

Stopped off on our way up to Yorkshire with the dog. Staff were very welcoming, able to sit near the fire, with the dog, and enjoy a good hearty meal. Service was quick, food very enjoyable, and great value for money. Will definitely stop off again if in the area.

We booked for 20 people for my father's 70th birthday. On arrival the pub looked warm and inviting, untill we where shown to a different room. The room was cold and uninviting. The food was quite nice but the chips where cold. We asked if we could order deserts, this took about 20 minutes, then we waited half an hour... More

Found the review I've just read very familiar, as our party also had a similar experience. I would say that we all enjoyed the food we ordered very much, ib had seafood tagliatelle which was rich and creamy with plenty of content. My brother had the spicy beef which he enjoyed. My wife had the gammon, again all good, and... More

we booked early, and turned up 15 minutes earlier.We ordered starters and mains. The battered Stilton mushrooms were good but unexceptional. Our mains arrived (Toad-in-the-hole & Double Aberdeen beefburger). My burger was cooked well but was thrown together in a soft bap. My wife had the Toad Residence which had seemed to have recent fire damage to the exterior. She... More

Visited on a busy Friday night when all bar 1 of the tables were reserved. Staff were pleasant and polite and the food was divine. Sticky Indian beef was to die for and the steak was solid 100% meat cooked to perfection would definitely recommend A*****

Visited with a party of 20 for lunch. We pre-ordered in the morning, went for a walk and our food was ready on our return 3 hours later. Everyone was happy with their order, a creative menu, reasonably priced. Happy to return

Booked for 7pm, we arrived early and were seated in the corner of the left hand side room, a drab uninviting room. Only one other couple were in this room and they soon left, this despite room being available in the much more welcoming main room. My partner suggested we were riff raff being kept away, it certainly felt like... More

Been here many times.Had lunch there today. Simple steak baguette and a ploughman's - well presented, good quality,reasonable price.They also offer a great range of ales - tried the Manchester Pale Ale today - a light summer beer in excellent condition. Friendly staff, sunny day - what's not to like.
