Early Supper

The beer was good. The food was just average but tasty and hot (Maybe we hace been spoiled by going to too many gastro pubs lately.) but this was made up for by the staff, who were friendly helpful and efficient. I would go there if I was just hungry rather than for a night out. They are... read more

Had been warned pub wasn't great, landlady miserable & food & service worse than poor but thought it couldn't possibly that bad as a local village pub, apparently I should have listened & saved my money, food was dry, over cooked & tasteless as was replacement that was ordered, landlady completely uncaring & staff just agreed that everyone complains but...

Very sorry you found our food dry and tasteless when you visited 6 months ago, although i'm a little dissappointed that you concentrate so much on how miserable I am! This local village pub has a wonderful hard-working team who contribute so much more than the miserable Land lady to your enjoyment and Service. We now also have a New... More

We asked and Tanya delivered.
