nothing special

The restaurant was busy (and noisy) and seems popular, but the best I can say is that it was OK but nothing special. We were in a party of six and two of us ordered smoked salmon and "summer coleslaw" and what arrived was so miserable and paltry that when we asked to see the manager she was so... read more

The servers all acted like someone has died (hopefully nobody has). Assuming nobody has their dismal attitude is appalling. And the food...wow, both mine and my wife's were shockingly terrible excuses for a "superfood salad", soggy chips, and a sloppy and sparse cold seafood platter. Thank goodness the wine was not made by them! At least it was there to... More

Wonderful British food and excellent selection of beer perfect for a stop after or before a stroll in the Heath

We think here with a friend for catch up drinks. The place was lovely with friendly staff and a it garden in the sun. We had to move to the side seating area to get food but when it came although the green salad was tiny, the pizza was really good followed by yummy cocktails!

Such a shame that this beautiful pub is so let down by the terrible service and poor quality food. It will be a very long time before I risk subjecting my family to this again!

Just back, booked a table, surly greeting but eventually we were seated at 7.30pm. This early in the evening they had already run out of Pimms ( it is a gator pub!) and cold bottled water. We were told if we wanted it cold we had to use ice but the ice took 20 minutes to come and was 3... More

Booked a table for a family dinner, service was by a moody looking non smiling waiter. Food was incredibly over priced £23 for a steak with dauphinois potatoes that were not only 'cold' but undercooked! Measly portions of mushrooms ( they don't cost that much!) if your going to try charging the earth for pub food - at least make... More
