It was our first visit and we arrived early planning to have a drink before we took our table. There didn't seem to be a bar area but luckily the weather was lovely and we chose to sit in the beer garden. We ordered our drinks at the bar but instead of pouring them straight away they said they would... More

Very basic, not too bad pub grub. Advertising local produce used on menu. Obviously no potatoes grown locally as we were unable to have chips with our meal as they had run out? Had a very unusual Vegetarian Curry which was extremely creamy (floating vegetables) even though it was not mentioned in the description. All in all it did not... More

Nothing fancy but offers decent low cost pub grub. Lovely beer garden and good service. We popped in after a long day site seeing and it was just what we needed.

Spent a pleasant evening in both the garden with its magnificent views and having a meal in the restaurant with the same view through the large picture windows. Food excellent with plenty of choice. The quality was very good and the quantities equally amazing, just like the staff who were very friendly, helpful and efficient. Enjoyed it very much. Thank... More

It was a very busy,bustling and friendly place with good food. The portions are quite large so if you like less ask for a smaller portion. Beautiful views from the garden

My wife and I ate here for three nights running so it must be pretty good, but it was a mix of very good and mediocre. The view from the gardens, the quality and quantity of the food were very good. The value for money was good. The décor is uninspiring and the chap behind the bar had a default... More

We were hoping for a little more, based on other reviews, but we ended up with standard grub. With such an extensive menu we would advise choosing wisely. We chose our dishes because the menu said they were "home made" and weren't sure what this meant about the other dishes. Nice side vegetables and plenty of them. Our waitress was... More

Went for drinks here a couple of times and ate as well. Good local beers but gastropub prices. Food was excellent and lots of it - would definitely recommend and not too many similar choices in this area. and if you don't believe me about the beer garden view go and have a look yourself on their website!
