Very middle of the road really, average Sunday Roast fayre, not bad but just okay, think the 4.5 rating on here is very mis-leading, far better options out there with a better level of service and meat that is carved off the bone, not the packet variety, nice desserts though

We have eaten here on a few occasions, the latest being lunch time on Christmas Eve. The main menu is the usual "pub grub" but there are always plenty of specials boards around and these offer a good variety of dishes. Food is always good and the service is friendly.

We visited on Saturday a group of five of us but unfortunately we were shoved in the corner and not able to breath at the table.. took 10 mins to get shuffled in and arranged and seated. We said to the bar staff but they just shrugged their shoulders as if to say what do you want us to do... More

Eaten here many times over the years and never been disappointed. Lunch time menu is my favourite, very tasty, easy food, typical pub grub. Would recommend, for a nice afternoon or evening out, relaxing and friendly.

Booked a table with friends for lunch. A lovely warm welcome, a really great menu with lots of traditional food with some really interesting specials. We all really enjoyed the well cooked food that was served with a smile and a cheery word. This was our second eating visit and maintained the high standard of our first. Well done !
