I visited here for dinner on the 08/08/2014 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The restaurant itself isn't huge, but that adds to the quality feel. It is fitted out to a high and modern standard with many old features retained. We were welcomed by the polite barman/waiter who took our drinks orders and showed us to our table. The menu... More

We were passing through on our narrowboat & some people we met in Leeds had recommended it. It was our anniversary & we had a fabulous time. They were so welcoming & the food was fantastic. We both had rump steak. It was seasoned perfectly & cooked exactly as we had asked for. It came with chips which were crispy... More

This is one of our favourites. Family owned & run, with a straightforward no- nonsense menu but don 't let that deceive! Locally sourced produce with steaks and fresh fish that are always & consistently as good as it gets. Hand cut, multiple cooked chips that for us remain unequalled, fresh vegetables, salads and deserts to die for! All this... More

Our large party were served efficiently by competent and friendly staff. It was good that the chef/owner had time to talk, Good beers on arrival, we enjoyed the starters and the silverside of beef was surprisingly good for a group who enjoys its sirloin. Only room for improvement would be more roast less mash! Excellent puddings and very good teas... More

Went here as a group of 8 for Sunday lunch. It is an unpretentious venue with a reasonably priced selection of food. If you are looking for a good Sunday roast you will get it here. The lamb shank I had was very good and the vegetables well prepared, though as has been commented already the two scoops of mash... More
