Great local pub serving delicious quality food

Had a lovely meal here on a Tuesday evening, lots of choice and very impressive seafood. Staff were attentive and helpful. Would go back again.

Having been here for our valentines meal earlier in the year, we thought it would be worth a punt to ask if they were also able to accomodate our wedding reception. From the outset Babs and Rob were amazingly accomodating and really went far beyond the call of duty to make sure we had a stress free experience in arrangin... More

Didn't even know this place existed till my friends told me about it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was well presented and tasty. There is a mouthwatering choice of cakes if you leave enough room after your Neal as well. Lots of craft beers and ciders available as well as the main brands. Great place

Stayed here whilst visiting a daughter at the uni. It was recommended by my sons friend who lives locally and did everything we wanted. Accommodation is above the pub and was previously the owners flat. Whilst the decor wasn't your usual hotel everything was clean tidy and professional. Our room faced onto the steeeeeep car park at the back and... More

After reading all reviews on this place and after trying to book a table for sunday lunch on many occasions, we were delighted to have a table confirmed for 4 people.We were not met with the warm welcome we had heard about, the service was slow and the Sunday lunch was awful. The starters were very expensive and we all... More

I booked this restaurant for a large party for Sunday lunch. The food on the varied menu was locally sourced, all home cooked including deserts and was truly delicious. The service was great and the host particularly welcoming. Car park a little tricky at busy times being the only downside. What a great experience... Well worth a visit.

The food was lovely fresh and well cooked we booked last minute and were lucky to get in. The lady in charge went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and make sure everything was to our satisfaction. My youngest fussy eating daughter whinged that her chicken nuggets were not brown enough which was overheard and she whisked them... More
