Fine food and perfect service with smiles

I went here with my girlfriend last Sunday and I really enjoyed the quality of food and service. We ordered Seabass with different vegetables, two Rioca red wines and for dessert the Panna Cotta. Nice choice! Very perfect service from the waitress who was taking care of our wishes. So great!

My husband's second celebration, this time with our daughter, son in law and grandchildren. This is a vintage pub. We have visited once before, the menu is extensive so caters for all tastes. Staff are friendly and helpful. This is a good place to take a family, the pub has many nooks and crannies so while being quite big it... More

A very nice pub with very friendly staff. The food was very nice and we all enjoyed our meals. I felt the price was a little high but the food was good quality. Only other criticism was the food took a while to arrive but was good when we got it.

In need of a good healthy salad, I was not expecting to find such an amazing one on a pub food menus. Hope the salad with endame beans stays on for a while!

We booked a table for 4 people (which we needed to change to seat 6 as we had 2 extra guests - not a problem) for 7pm. We were greeted by very friendly staff and the young male waiter assigned to our table was not only polite and helpful but fun too. It is quite some time since we last... More

Always served promptly with friendly staff. Seasonal menu and choice of wine is extensive. Great location and in the summer has the advantage of seating outside giving you the feeling of a beer garden :-)

This is a regular place for us to take our parents. It is part of the Vintage Inn chain and the food is always good. Staff are always friendly and helpful. It is always busy at the weekends and a good family meal venue.

I eat/drink here quite regularly as it is a 3 minute walk from my house. I adore their food, choice of wines and vintage inn setting. I have been here with friends, family and my boyfriend, it suits every meeting. The staff are always quick to seat and serve you. In the summer the garden in wonderful, although close to... More
