I celebrated my XX birthday at this pub mid July this year. The 10 of us were given a nice area to sit in, we were well looked after by the staff, the food was really good, and the price was within my planned budget. A really good night had by all. Thank you.

What a huge improvement this place has made since the change of management/ownership. We were a family party of five, and the three carnivores had an excellent meal. The lamb was tender and tasty, and the steak and chips was perfectly cooked. The wine list is very good indeed for "pub grub". Unfortunately the vegetarian options are very disappointing -... More

Went here tonight as a party of four. Nice surroundings and as it was a Sundat went for the roast. Although very nice and a good portion we felt the starters, which equally were very nice were quite overpriced for what you got? My partner opted for the Black pudding, bacon, and mushroom 'stack'....well it could've been a stack if... More

Visited with family, after hearing the menu had changed with the new owners. Although not booked, as a Wednesday night, the place was rather busy, with a couples, small family groups and a large party of gents. The menu was different and varied but no specials on. Choices of wine good. Only down side was we were seated by ourselves... More
