This was a Family get together with four generations present to celebrate an engagement, a third Birthday and an impending major Op for the Patriarch (me). The food needed to cover a 3-86 age range including a diabetic and a tomato intolerant and the menu easily covered that. Everyone found the food good and the nine of us were seated... More

Used to go here all the time as a family and we thought we'd go back as we remembered it so fondly. Our jolly evening was immediately dampened down by the bar maid who served us who was quite frankly just plain rude and miserable. Service was slow despite not being hugely busy and the rest of the staff we... More

The service was brilliant and quick. Ordered the belly of pork and it was cooked to perfection, crackling was lovely and veg was cooked just right. Not a massive amount to choose from but our party of 12 all found something they liked and not a single complaint. Lovely gardens to sit in. I Would recommend this resturant to friends.

I have been to this pub a few times now. The setting and decor is lovely BUT the menu needs a serious revamp. The only way I can describe this was boring! I felt so unspirired with the boring bland menu choices! Mix it up a bit!

I've eaten here with business clients 3 times over the last couple of years as their place of choosing. Most recent was yesterday and once again very good. Thing is...in a business lunch you are focused on what you are there to do business about and so be oblivious to your setting? Well no. The setting can make all the... More

Good wide choices at lunchtime including smaller plates and specials. The food was very tasty and it was well served and good value. The pub has a wide choice of beers and outside seating and kitchen

We meet up here regularly as it is a central point for us and family members, the last time we met in May we were all struck at the improvement in the food quality and the decor of the place -toilet refurb.
