One of those restaurants that has an extensive menu of complex dishes...so much that you know it's brought in, pinged and presented. Pork medallions with brandy sauce was just swimming in sauce. Veg okay but very standard. Seemed to better for currys or possibly carvery's. Would imagine there's much better around.

Its straight out of the seventies. Went as a largish party and the food generally was poor. Maybe the carvery is better but we went off the specials board. One of us had a chicken diner that was cold should of been hot. I made a big mistake and ordered beef fillet mignons which were without doubt the worst presented... More

Just been for a family meal with my sister and elderly parents,we have been many times before and always have had a great time, we booked as it is usually very busy and so we were very surprised to see a very empty carpark and similarly empty restaurant. My mother asked for a lager and lime, only to be informed... More

We go to the Shires fairly regularly. Much has been said about the carvery on this site. On the last occasion we both had the carvery. We went at about 6.30 on a Friday evening so the carvery had only been open for a short while. The beef was poor and quite fatty. The roast potatoes were hugely disappointing and... More

We have visited this pub on many occasions and always been delighted. However, when we visited on a busy Saturday it was disastrous. It was a birthday and we had a party of 8. The service was dreadful - there seemed to be a lot of inexperienced young staff and the lack of attention to detail was shocking. I asked... More

First visit for the Sunday carvery - only complaint was that the crackling on the pork didn't crackle! However our visit, with friends, was, unfortunately, ruined by three uncontrolled young children who were allowed to make as much noise as they wanted. Also, we were sat at a table which was literally surrounded by the queue of people at the... More

We are regulars here and it never fails to please. One word of warning! The portion sizes are not for the faint hearted! We have learned this from previous visits ; order something like the pate and it's almost as good as a main course . They will always 'go the extra mile'. When we visited a couple of weeks... More
