Visited on Saturday evening (31st Jan 2015). On arrival there was a mix up on the Pubs behalf regarding the booking time with no apology! We waited 1hour 15mins for starters to arrive once seated, then another long wait for our mains. Service was very poor with untrained staff, food was very average, one main had to be sent back...

As with many mid-week evening we thought we'd have supper and a drink here. We visit on average a couple of times a month spending between £40 and £60 a time. Service atmosphere food etc always good. Not necessarily the most inexpensive but not outrageous - until last night. My fancied a Red Wine instead of our usual White. I... More

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime and the bar area and eating areas were pretty full. Lovely old pub atmosphere , warm and inviting on a chilly day. Only one person serving at the bar which took longer than we would have liked as we were a couple and there were several groups waiting. Told food would be 30min wait as... More

We stayed at this hotel for a friend's wedding. From walking through the door you were looked after, lovely rooms ours had a rolltop bath in the bedroom (beautiful) all the breakfast you would need. Continental and a menu with hot food which you can order from. Great service would go there again. Thanks 😊

We had a superb meal here on a January , Tuesday evening. Blazing fire in the hearth and excellent service. Where else would I like to spend a cold January Tuesday evening. The bar was full of like minded people all enjoying the super food and ambiance. The duck that I had was superb. A memorable evening. Thanks to all... More

Wanted to go here for a while to eat, bar staff seemed a bit preoccupied, food was good but bit pricey for a club sandwich.

We had a lovely meal here recently. The staff were very friendly and efficient . Nothing was too much trouble for them. The menu was not vast but had enough choice and the quality of the food was excellent. Well worth the time to visit this pub and have a meal.

A family birthday lunch-time meal. Parking in car park and opposite no real problem apart from the heavy traffic! [It is a tight squeeze through the archway into the small car park for anything other than a small car.] The wine and beers were excellent as was the range of the Saturday lunch menu - everyone was able to choose...

Just by chance the thunderstorm struck as we were passing this attractive pub so what else could we do but dive in, have a pint and order one of the special lunches put on during the week. What a treat and the fish served in such an innovotive manner! TEN stars

What a lovely review, our lunchtime offer throughout the week is still proving very popular with Fish & chips being by far our best seller. I just hope that we don’t have to wait for such weather before we see you again! More

I visited thinking I would spoil myself and enjoy an above-average Sunday lunch. Boy, was I disappointed. Firstly to charge £3.80 for a pint of beer when Sam Smiths sells beer for £1.88 and Wetherspoon's for £1.99 is shocking. And before the management claim it was a superior ale it was far from that - it was cloudy and tasted... More
