Regularly visit for a Sunday lunch with the family and I have always been impressed! I always try to book early as it can get busy! The staff are very friendly and helpful! I do recommend a trip for a good Sunday roast!

First Christmas day lunch visit for me and the family and won't be the last.....wonderful atmosphere, lovey food (as always) and even though there was a second sitting following us not once did we feel rushed or pressured to leave our table. Booked again already for this year and can't wait.

Beautiful pub in lovely setting, great food, fantastic and fast service. Beef dinner and cheesecake were amazing, all the other meals looked equally as nice. Toilets were clean, staff friendly.

Previous experience at other pubs at this time of the year was that quality and service suffers as they struggle to cater for... More

Excellent service, food that makes makes you realise there's a good chef in the kitchen and a good ambiance makes this a 'cut above the rest'. Very helpful waitress you knew about 'gluten free' and was able to instantly advise... More
