Good enough to take friends

With quite a scarcity of decent eating establishments in the area, I took my wife here for a birthday lunch. The interior is smart, clean and bright in the open-plan style, chairs and tables all clean, toilets fresh. Bar drinks choice reasonable (good if you include cocktails); food well presented... read more

Have changed so much to what it used to be, went here for Sunday dinner gravy was like water, veg was hard and the meat was out of a packet and tasted like rubber.(the desert was nice). Staff are rude and unfriendly, also there is no one ever in the pub but yet you still get told 'to be quiet'.

The staff are great, very friendly and can't do enough for you, the food comes out quickly and is hot. It never appears very busy which tends to put us off. I do think this could be turned into a wine bar with snack food, which we would probably use more and I'm sure the teenagers would also. It's quite... More

We came across this place, while staying locally at Bryn Meadows hotel & spa! This public house has a lovely seating area inside for dining, service was quick & friendly, nothing seemed to much for the staff. Food was very nice & quick & I particularly liked being asked how I would like my Lamb cutlets cooked, it's not often... More

We tried this pub again, as we'd heard it had changed hands. And indeed much better. Our order was taken at the table, which was a nice touch. There wasn't an enormous choice, and no prices on the specials board. But our food came quickly, and was very hot. Pretty good too. Not the best ever, but very tasty. More... More
