All 22 of us, all retirees, booked our Christmas lunch for 12.30 on Thursday 4 December. Tables had been laid for us in a side room, it was very festive with crackers laid out on the tables. We had pre-ordered our food from the festive menu, so the starters were brought to the tables and the soup, the mushrooms in... More

We have been here before and always enjoyed it but this time was a little bit of a let down , we both had carvery which we had fancied but I must say that some of the vedgetables were well underdone for me almost to the point of barely cooked . I do understand that people have different tastes but... More

We've been here a few times and the food is okay but not one of the better fayre and square pubs.staff were friendly enough but the whole place lacks a bit of atmosphere. Would go again but don't expect too much.

I visited this pub on sunday it was a fayre square pub so i new it would be busy. I was pleasantly surprised we arrived at 2 o'clock for sunday lunch. We had not booked but quickly got a seat. The 3 of us decided to try the carvery despite having bad experiences in other pubs. The food was hot... More

Lovely village pub with a very large garden but everything else was terrible. Service was poor, slow without a smile. Food was just about edible. Dry and tasteless. Will not return

We decided at the last moment to have the Sunday Lunch Carvery. I don't think we will be rushing back! To be fair, the beef was ok although there wasn't much of it. The veggies were at least interesting as they ranged from undercooked to totally cremated. But the real shocker for me was the "roast potatoes" mainly because they... More

The food was great value for money, went in with a friend, steak was cooked perfectly. I personally prefer more smaller venues with a more friendly approach, but the meal was good and that's what we went in for.

This place is a mystery to us. How can you have such a lovely building in a great location which has no appeal whatsoever. This was our second visit, first time was at a weekend. On this occasion, we visited at 4pm on a Monday and left at 5.15pm. When we arrived, there were two families there. By 5pm we... More

The beef was very good. The gammon was under cooked. We had purchased for the carvery and should have looked at the veg in more detail. Bad selection of vegetables where awful to look at and didn't taste good at all. We were very hungry and didn't want to wait for fresh cooked food (big mistake)! The broccoli was yellow... More
