Just had a lovely late lunch. Steaks were very tasty, kids fish and chips very good. We are always looking for family friendly places and you can't beat this one. Lovely safe garden and inside play area. Staff very friendly. We would recommend.

Found this pub by driving back to camp site. Wish we had have kept driving. Food was very average , isle of wight sausages??!! Really cheap bookers sausages... The staff need lessons in customer service...arguing and not working or cleaning the place was a tip... Looked ok from the outside. Just needs someone to take the bull by the horns... More

After dining here on holiday for 7+years! the place has taken a turn for the worse!
