Have been here a couple of times now for Sunday lunch, always wondered why the car park is so full, now know why. The spit roast chicken for 2 on the Sunday menu is fab (apart from the stuffing which was tiny and tasteless - not a deal breaker though). Dessert sharing platter also delicious and very good value for... More

We hadn't booked and went here as we were passing for a late Sunday lunch. The decor is lovely - all wood beams and clean lines. The service was excellent throughout - I really liked the smart/casual dress code of the waiting team. We both had a trio of meats Sunday lunch - it was delish! Beef, pork, chicken, roast... More

I went here with my partner for an evening meal. There was a good selection on the menu. We ordered squid for starter which we found to be over cooked and rubbery. For mains we had pork belly and lamb. Both were very nice. Desserts we had a caramel chocolate pot, which wasn't as described very bitter and not really... More

Walked in on a Sunday evening and got a table within around 20 minutes. Service very good, attentive and friendly. Quality of food also very good. However prices are not the cheapest, even more so for children. There is a separate kids menu with mains at £6, however this is for the main with no drink or desert. My 3... More

Very good pub serving delicious food and drink - not over priced - offers great fixed price menu -good value for money. Excellent service. Nice al fresco area. Although it's located on a busy roundabout, its set back enough so even if you're sat outside, you don't really notice the road noise too much.

Ate here for mid week lunch with friends as their pick. Decor better than average and plenty of parking and outside seating. Had the lamb koftas to start and these were tasty but overpriced at £7 for a small starter portion. Then had the ale battered line caught cod and chips - £12. The batter looked darker than expected and... More

I have been going to this place for years and thought it was a safe bet. Not so on this occasion. The menu is limited and expensive for what you get. The food this time was overlooked and not tasty. The tables were so close together that it was hard for anyone to have a private conversation. And too make... More
