Myself and two others arrived at 17.55 on 1st June, ordered from the bar promptly (two portions of chips to start, followed by a vegetable pizza, cheeseburger, and a side of onion rings) but did not receive our chips until 19.15! We assumed there was a back up in the kitchen or a fryer had broken (not everything can always... More

Where do I start with this one. I am sorry that your visit was disappointing. However, having reviewed our till system and found your order from Monday, I have found that your order was placed at 18.22 and not 17.55 and that your chips were not ordered as a starter. Bearing in mind there was a 40 minute delay on... More

We have had two meals here this week, and been really pleased with the friendly service and excellent food. The garden is lovely for children, with a pirate ship and even a bouncy castle. Would highly recommend.

Been here many times before and not ever left disappointed. Another great meal today. All food was well priced, came out in good time and all ten meals out together. Was told about the pub loyalty card and have now applied for that so will be back again. The children loved the play area and ate their food with no... More

My wife and I with 2 boys (4 and 1) turned up no booking. They found us a table and all was great. The soft play occupied the boys whilst we waited for food. We ate on Wednesday 20th May the two lads who manned the bar and served where run off their feet, yet kept us and the other... More

I haven't eaten here for years. It's been recently redecorated and refurbished and the new quirky interior with nooks and crannies and old books and maps is a great start to the evening. They do themed evenings but the general menu is more than sufficient and great value. We had a burger and fish. Great sized portions, very friendly staff... More

Beer was good, choice of a couple of ales, including a local one. Good choice of "pub" food, but also a good specials board. Good was excellent, veg a bit overdone for me. Waitress in a world of her own, but 2 blokes behind the bar played a blinder all night.

Just returned from a weeks hols and we were that impressed with the food and service, we ate there every night. The menu is typical pub food but it is all prepared fresh and is homemade and the portion sizes are generous. The pub itself is clean, cosy and the staff are very friendly. Would highly recommend.
