We had our work Christmas dinner here this evening, and it was fabulous! The whole process was so easy and well organised - we dropped off a list that we pre-ordered from the menu a few weeks ago, and then it all appeared tonight! The team were so efficient and friendly, there were 19 of us and they looked after... More

We found out by accident that A Saucerful of Floyd were playing at this pub, and we were very pleased with the band and the venue. We had an excellent night. The pub was well run, and the service good.

A nice large restaurant with good service. Sunday roast was tasty. More meat would have been popular! A good place for a family/friends get-together, and the staff were friendly.

The food and service is always great. Nice lay out inside and a big garden with a climbing frame, great for everyone. Would definitely recommend.
