Lunch

Went for lunch for four, after a break since the previous management moved on. Really impressed with the standard of the food and the service was friendly and helpful. Worth a visit!

Closed down. No reply from phone or email or letter. When we got there there was a "to let" sign on the side and no one in sight. Car park was empty but useful!

As a local, we use this pub frequently. The young chef michael is talented and innovative. The portion sizes are just right and priced accordingly. They will do very well in the future if they sort out a few issues, wine is limited, no sauvignon blanc for 3 weeks. Apparently they have over ordered and have a huge quantity of... More

Please revisit this pub. The new chef is amazing. A very young man with an excellent talent for producing outstanding food. Well done to him and the new team. We had an amazing meal last night and will be back very soon.

Having read some of the reviews below I questioned whether we should go or not, however, I heard it had changed hands and there was a new menu so would give it a go.

A good menu for a pub-really liked the Lemon Posset for dessert. Found that the published opening times were incorrect-not open on Mondays-shame as we wanted to pay a return visit.
