Nice place, good food

Thoroughly enjoyed my evening here, had a lovely meal in nice surroundings. The only down side was the waiters now take your order on IPhones (or similar) so hover at the table for ages as they enter your order on the screen. Very off putting when trying to hold a conversation with your dinner... read more

Stopped here for lunch yesterday, expecting a fair quality offering as it is within the PCDG brand of Mitchell & Butlers. Took a table outside and read the well written menu before making our choices and ordering at the bar. Being mid afternoon it was not unduly busy and the food and drinks were served in a reasonable time. Alas,... More

We had a delicious lunch here on Saturday 23 May. The food, a crayfish and crab pot, scallops and smoked salmon were very good but the fishcakes were a tad disappointing as they contained more potato than fish. It's definitely worth a visit.

We arrived to a warm welcome and were shown to a nice table for four. What strikes you about this place apart from the good décor and quality of the surroundings is that is it very warm comfortable and full of quiet people, no roudyness here! The menu is extensive with extra trimmings. I enjoyed my scallop starter although I... More

Stopped off for a late Sunday Lunch (about 5.30pm) and wasn't surprised to see the restaurant and the bar still busy. It had been a nice sunny day and there were still people outside in the garden as well as most tables occupied inside. We've eaten our way through the menu over the past 6 months and am looking forward... More

A lovely garden for summer and very comfortable and modern inside for any time. The staff are always friendly and he food is very good, if a little pricey for what you get. Modern and comfortable with a huge garden and large easy car park, this is definitely my choice of pub in the area.

Had a light supper here and it was faultless. Food was delicious and the service was great. We were told that there would be a 30 minute wait for food but then the waiter found us a table immediately. We were very impressed. Don,t pass by this place it is far more impressive than the exterior would suggest.

Expensive for what it is...ordered a Scallop starter at just under £10 and was presented with three minuscule scallops without any roes with a scattering of raw root vegetables to try and fill the plate. A Linguine main course was inedible as a result of too much chilli; with prawns?! A long wait for service. Whilst a lovely setting and... More
