In a great location with decent ales, a relaxed atmosphere, and friendly staff who don't mind chatting and having a laugh with the customers. Also, pool and... More

After our walk we found our tables all set up and reserved. Drinks we bought and our meals arrived hot and on time. Everyone was very impressed with the food and friendly service. If you... More

We visited this Pub whilst on Holiday, following the good report from Trip Advisor, but were very disappointed with the Food. The Ham was a strange colour, possibly out of a freezer, and the Chilli Con Carne was dry and tasteless. as if it was old from another day. Chef was advised, but did nothing in the way of a... More

Thank you very much for your feed back, your opinions are very important to us. I would like to apologise on behalf of the team that your experience was not as it should have been.

Wheelchair bound and not going out for six months, my cousin has now found somewhere she feels comfortable to visit for a meal. There is plenty of level parking and large doors for wheelchair access to the pub. Someone has thought about this as the disabled loo has level and wide access too (which is often the downside to going... More

Thank you very much for your great review, your feedback is very much appreciated. Although the pub hasn't been refurbished for a few years we try to keep it clean and fresh. Sorry the Ham was unavailable, it does take a few hours to cook so sometimes this hinders service, but we're glad to hear you will be back to... More

We had 2 meals for £9.95 and they were excellent value for money. We had a lovely lunch, staff were friendly and will certainly be going back again. Pleased to... More
