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

Food was OK but staff made you feel as if you were an inconvenience. Had to wait for carvery while chef 'faffed' around. Wasn't exactly a cheerful sole to say the least.

1st visit for a few years and not entirely disappointed but really should be much much better, bar man while a bit too informal for my liking was friendly and efficient, the rest of the team including the managers said the right things but clearly didn't want to be there. We popped in for carvery but it looked dry &... More

We visited last night for Birthday celebrations a party of six adults and one child arriving at 7pm. This is somewhere I have never been before and on arrival was impressed by the grounds and setting of the pub however this was all they had to offer. On finding a table in the gardens to enjoy the sunshine we proceeded... More
