Called in for lunch on a Saturday. It was busy but we were met by friendly staff who quickly led us to a table and explained what was on offer. The food was good and varied, with several specials of the day. It was fairly priced for what was on offer - the walnut ice cream was wonderful. A good... More

My husband and I often come here for Sunday lunch. Unlike the restaurant menu on other days it's a carvery but don't let that put you off as it's not the usual boring offerings dried up by the overhead lights but lovely freshly cooked veg and plump meats carved for you by the chef. There's a great family atmosphere and... More

Came with friends for a pre Christmas catch up as they had been before and said it was brilliant. Upon arrival we were taken to the restaurant area and were seated near the large open fire-perfect as it was freezing out!! We ordered our drinks and began looking at the menu. My friend wanted a particular pint of beer but... More

On our infrequent trips to our old home town we always try and find time for lunch at "the Coach". If you're not a local may be a little tricky to find but leaving the square and heading for the Quarry up Swan Hill will get you there. Lunch menu is sufficient to cover all needs from a full roast... More

Called in here for a few drinks as we enjoy our real ale. Couldn't fault it, good oldie worldie pub, full to the brim with every age person. Good choice of ales, locally brewed as well. Didn't try the food but will be returning. Great evening had & met a really friendly dog!!

I went with friends to this establishment (13.12.14) and we had the Christmas meal, puddings etc. The food was very tasty and well served. Lovely atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. Good choice of various beers. Fairly priced.
