New kids menu since we last ate here. I did like the concept that children could choose half portion of adult menu but I have to admit it was useful to have the option of fish and chips to offer to the children. The food is really nice pub food, well cooked and nicely presented - amazing fat chips! We... More

I recently visited her with three of my girlfriends and had a celebration birthday lunch. Boy, were we not disappointed. I've travelled with work a lot this year and I must admit, this has been the find of the year for me. The food was delicious and the chef was pretty hot too! I started with garlic mushrooms which were... More

A Pint of good beer and a Royal Oak sandwich (this time pork bell and a spanish meatball) including bowl of home made soup served by friendly staff. The perfect lunch.

We chose this restaurant/pub based on trip advisor reviews and were so glad we did. They were fully booked for dinner but the staff quickly found a way to accommodate us. My partner and I and his parents all enjoyed the meal and atmosphere equally. We shared delicious breads/oils/etc which were divine! I chose a vegetarian option because it looked... More

Wanted some good pub food for lunch and this place more by accident than anything else. The menu looked great and we were not let down. Some of the dishes looked very straightforward but they were far from that. The ham egg and chips comprised of their home cooked hock of ham, and then what appeared to have been pan... More

Fabulous food beautifully presented. Friendly and attentive staff. Not cheap but worth it. Felt comfortably satisfied rather than overfull as is often the norm!

Both courses we had were sublime. Great food, excellent portions and very filling. Started with the lovely tapas sharer which had one of my favourite cheese on (Halloumi!) and then finished with Monkfish (which I'd never normally pick!) Great stuff, will go again.

Often go here because gluten free cooking isn't a problem for them. 6 of us went on Sunday for my birthday lunch - we ordered 3 sharing platters and we all loved it - lots of meat (beef, lamb and pork) huge yorkshire, real roast potatoes and loads of veg, all cooked to perfection and served with a smile -...

Booked table for Saturday evening and arrived to learn that the car park was full due to a wedding party taking place in a marquis in the grounds of this pub. We presumed that the menu would be restricted and service rather slow as a result but happily we were wrong. The full menu was on offer and the service... More
