My first visit here, stopped for a couple of drinks, nice venue, atmosphere and people. Deceptively big inside yet still retains some charm

We had Sunday lunch here today. Booked for 12:30, told we had a two hour slot until 2:30. Similar to other comments here, the bar could have done with an extra member of staff, as it got progressively busier after we were seated. There was a large and varied choice on the menu of starters,mains and desserts. Portions are good,... More

Lovely food, service and atmosphere. We come here regularly for a treat and would very much advise anyone and everyone to have a meal or drink here. We used to love to walk from caster to alwalton with the dog and sit in the beer garden with snacks. This really is a beautiful location and the food isn't too bad... More

This is a definite case of never judge a book by its cover! The outside is gorgeous, so much character. We went inside and it got off to a poor start. No one to greet us. We eventually got hold of the bar man (who was the manager) and we got sat at our table. (we would never have assumed... More

Decided spur of the moment to visit on the Sunday after Christmas for early dinner. Had roast turkey and all the trimmings, burger and chips for two with drinks

Went with friends who also agreed the experience was not as good as it has been in the past. Food was overrated and my friends left their meals as not as what they expected. The Christmas menu which we chose from was not as good as previous years

Table booked for 11, as always a few drop out last minute but probably a good thing they did! as they had NO booking for us, despite it being made! and using a Gourmet card, which you have to tell them about at the time of booking. This meant that our group were the last to be served. The service... More

Visited with two friends on 12 December for dinner. Pre-booked a table 4 weeks earlier having visited the pub in person when we were looked after by a very helpful waitress and the food was good. However on arrival the table we had reserved was occupied and we had to wait about 5 minutes before someone came to enquire if... More
