Poor value for money on the sirloin steak. Food was well presented but not worth it. When we made our views known, the waitress was very polite but nobody from management spoke to us at all, very poor customer service. Great shame as rest of evening was great.

The sandwiches/baguettes have chips, coleslaw or potato salad with them too. The staff are friendly and helpful. On our last visit they joined tables together for us because there were six of...

This inn had an extensive menu which was very good value. It is spacious with lots of seating. The staff were attentive and met our dietary needs without fuss. A relaxing friendly eating place worth a visit and also ideal for a pre-theatre drink.

Just the three of us for an evening meal. Staff very friendly and competent but the meal a bit of a disappointment. The mackerel starter was well presented and with two large slices of granary bread.
