We came here midweek and the food and wine were very good but there only seemed to be one waitress on duty and it was nearly an hour after arriving that my meal was served. Still, it was all very enjoyable and appeared home cooked, and I would certainly return.

Having stayed in a cottage just down from this pub & reading the visitor's book we thought we'd give it a try on our second last night boy was it worth waiting for from the crab starter to a main of steak to forcing down a brilliant sticky toffee pud all at very good prices this is one pub not...

We met friends here this week and we found it a great place for lunch. There were very few customers on the day for lunch. The service was friendly . The food was good and the helpings generous. The dining room was light and airy , very pleasant on a warm afternoon.

Not a spectacular gastric pub but value for money rules here. The wines are too reasonable to be true and the food is great. Not gourmet, just excellent standard fare.

Country pub about a mile out of Grange over Sands. No big shocks or surprises on the menu. Food good, portions very large. After the confit duck leg (excellent) I could make little impression on the steak pie. Desserts remain a closed book! Prices very reasonable. Well worth a visit if in the area but pace yourself...

We are local - live in the village but felt compelled to leave a review after reading some of the very unfair reviews on here! We eat here regularly and have never had a bad meal. Certainly don't agree with the review stating the food is over priced. This is by far the best eating house in the area -... More
