Visited here for Sunday brunch with about 20 family members, including quite a few children. Tea and scones were delicious. The China Shop area is beautifully decorated and very pretty. The kids had a great time exploring the garden. A lovely place to pass an hour or so on a weekend morning.

Super pub with great bar and restaurant . Lovely atmosphere and food was delicious. This pub used to be a lot smaller but has been extended, none of the atmosphere has been lost. Great menu and lots of choices if you're a vegetarian.

Went here one evening with my husband as I didn't feel like cooking. There was good choice on the menu and the food arrived promptly and was very nice. Service was great. Definitely would recommend for lunch or dinner if you are in the area.

This is the place the locals go for group and family gatherings, casual dinners at night, where the kids are welcome and you can have a couple of glasses of wine. Solid pepper steak, excellent fish and chips. Worth a visit, even if there was a 20 minute wait.

Recently moved to the area,and I can honestly say this is one place I would not recommend to anyone who is not known here,on more than one occasion had to wait more than 5-10mins to get served,on speaking to manager???she gave the most patronising of apologies. I know I'm a dub,but my money is as good as the next man....... More
