Evening dinner. Service was good. Food was excellent. Had the chicken and ribs which were good but the jacket potato and onion rings stole the show. Tried to get a table the following night but it was booked. Will return if in the area again.

All the meat was really good, and came with very creamy mash, roast potatoes, carrots, cabbage and yorkshire pudding for just £8.50 - I had turkey so also had a ball of stuffing and sausage wrapped in bacon. It's a pub,... More

My partner and I went for a teatime treat and we were not disappointed. We arrived at 1630hours and all the tables had reserved on them but we were allocated a table which we had to vacate by 1800hours. The staff gave us a nice warm greeting and we ordered our food which when it came was generous in portions... More
