Very impressed.

11 of us visited for evening meal on Mothers Day and although they were obviously very busy we received excellent service from the minute we entered to the time we left. The food was hot, of a very high standard and reasonably priced. If you are visiting for a birthday celebration don't forget to... read more

After a long day of travelling, we dumped our bags in a local hotel and headed for dinner. This was around 20:30 on a saturday night, and luckily we got a table. From the greeting at the beginning , the manager was lovely throughout. We ordered a starter and 3 mains, and all were delicious. Very reasonable pricing considering how... More

Mothering Sunday very busy nice friendly welcome shown to our pre-booked table immediately special menu plus normal menu. Expected to wait a bit longer as all tables occupied but the wait was reasonable. Food and service excellent . Good selection of ales.

It's a steal! Wonderfull atmosphere, log fire burning nice drink to start with... One of the best roast turkey and pork lunches we have had ! All very fresh and hot (not microwaved!) meat,lovely roasted veg to accompany it and lashings of delirious gravy to top it all. We shared the selection of deserts,chocolate brownie tower,trifle and tasty cheesecake. Recommend... More

Met up with family and picked this pub as a halfway point. Originally booked for 15 (no problem when I phoned) but reduced nearer the time. Pub is lovely inside with exposed sandstone (?) walls and old beams, with lots of nooks and crannies for sitting in ....much nicer than I was expecting it to be. Good choice of food... More

This is certainly not a gourmet centre for food, everything is familiar and does not disappoint.. What makes this rally positive is that you can be confident that the kids will like what they order if it is a favourite. Can take a while to get food at peak times but over all a good exerience.

We have been now twice to this pub once for lunch and once for dinner. The pub is a wonderful old coach style pub. Nice open fire warm inside full of character. The staff was very friendly and nothing was to much bother to them. The food was very nice and excellent value for money. This is one place we... More
