My daughter experienced his smart tongue the last time she was there too but... More

A long established venue with a constant supply of customers from locals and those farther afield. But if you expect a warm welcome or a smile when you arrive, you will be disappointed .. the reception is lukewarm every time and if you haven't a reservation you could be forgiven for thinking you are an inconvenience as the Diary is...

If a customer has not booked we have to refer to our table plan to check which tables are free so... More

Went here with the family for tea last minute. Fast friendly service, good portion size and food pipping hot. No complaints will be back.

Out for lunch , what a disappointment , liver over cooked and frozen veg , Brie wedges lovely but would have been better if they were hot . Service : nothing really to mention , thought this would be a cosy inn but really a big bland dining room
