We went here for Sunday lunch and had a lovely three course meal. Prawn cocktail starter had plenty of prawns unlike other places I've been. The Roast beef with all the trimmings was delicious and the cheesecake was outstanding. The staff were very friendly and there was a lovely atmosphere. Overall an excellent place to eat at great value.

I can't understand why this place has received any bad reviews!Visited both on the Saturday and Sunday. Wonderful place. The food was lovely and great value for money. I had a steak which was cooked exactly how I'd asked for it. The breaded Brie was outstanding and the baguette was fresh, filling and tasty. Sunday roast was perfect!! The staff... More

Its slightly out of town so we assumed it may have to work a little harder to get customers... Firstly there was noone in the pub at 12.15 on a... More

Having passed this pub on many occasions, we decided to stop for a pub snack. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Although we only had snacks, a House burger for me and a Minted Lamb burger for my wife we were very pleased with our meals. The quality of the food was good the quantity was more that adequate...

Decided to try this pub about a fortnight ago. We arrived at midday for Sunday lunch as we hadn't booked so decided to arrive early. We both had a starter and a main meal both of which were terrible. We opted for the roast beef - the roast beef was not tender and hard to cut. Although there were plenty... More
