The 2 chefs inability to even be able to cook burgers and chips properly beggars belief. The chips were undercooked (French fry style) and the burger was bloody and raw in the middle, all for £10 ? A joke

There are obviously different perceptions about a pub. Reading past reviews demonstrates this very clearly. From our point of view, as a group of 5 walkers, back from an excellent walk in the area, we had no negatives. Welcome was friendly with good, traditional beers to slake our thirsts. We found good choices of main courses from the house menu... More

This is a locals pub. The service and the food was just 'ok'!The menu is quite small and my partner didn't like the choice of beers on tap of which there were only 2 or 3. Not a noisy pub, just a bit nothing special.

We turned up without booking and managed to squeeze 11 of us onto a couple of tables. Excellent range of beers. Food choice was good, quite quick service. Menu for kids was good - half sized portions of the adult menu. Would definitely return if we were passing through again.

We came on a Sunday whilst my sister was down to see us, expecting a nice, but typical pub grub. First of all we were astounded at how nice the place was presented in itself, very easy parking, great access for the wheelchair and generally clean and rustic. The waitress was very attentive, ordered our drinks and gave us time... More
