We had Sunday lunch here yesterday. The food was very good, but the service was, to say the least, unacceptable The staff were very agreeable, but never there when needed. Consequently, after ordering drinks we had to go to the bar to ask for someone to come to the table to take our next order. It is was pity because... More

It was a cold, wet miserable Tuesday night and I pulled up in my citroen xsara Picasso. It was about 20 past the hour and I felt like I needed a refreshing beverage. I entered the tavern in a horrible state as it was raining and I had forgotten my umbrella. Upon entrance I noticed a stallion with lucious golden... More

Have visited on a few occasions and it's improving on each occasion. The owners have extended the building and done this to a very high spec and tastefully done. The food venue has a range of options including hot sandwiches, swinging skewers (very impressive) and steaks to name a few. Staff are very helpful and attentive. A great place to... More

Being local with friends visiting I booked a table for Saturday lunchtime at the beginning of December. I had to pay a £10 deposit each and they also wanted our pre-order. Totally unnecessary when the pub wasn't busy on our arrival and to be honest it's totally taken the shine off when our food was ordinary at best!

Thank Jane B
