Ate here while staying at nearby Holiday Inn prior to holiday as we had read reviews recommending this pub. We had the sharing platter which was fair and desserts were excellent. Very pleasant waitress and good service. would certainly use again.

Ordered fish pie which had five small pieces of fish (no prawns as stated) and ended up sending it back. Not fun to go out as a couple yet eat at separate times.

Visited for family lunch at the weekend. Unfortunately, tables cannot be booked so go earlier rather than later. We all had various items from the menu including childs meal. this came out last which was a little inconvenient as small child needed to let food cool down and ate slowly! All food was good and nicely presented. Waitress was smiley... More

Great value for money and Loverly surroundings both inside and out , good quality food with competitive prices , can get very busy resulting in service being a little slow but worth the wait

Been twice in past 4 weeks. Staff polite and helpful. Quick service. Food excellent. Went on both occasions at lunchtime and both times it was cold inside. Please get that heating on ! My only gripe is the fish finger sandwiches were off the menu because they did not get a delivery. Odd that the menu says Freshly hand made!!!... More

I was with friends and all of their meals were fine, but I cut into the pak choi and it had not been washed well and their were lots, lots - not just one or two flies that had been missed in the process, too many to make me believe this veg had seen the kitchen sink for the briefest... More

The food is decent and the set meal at £11.95 is very reasonable. The ambience is really nice. Music isn't too loud. There's candlelight and an outdoor seating area. Portions are generous. Pretty great, although a random waitress did come to my table when I was just beginning my meal and tried to take away my used bowls of sauces... More
