Arrived on speck to find the car park quite full so worried we wouldn't get a seat. However got a table in the bar as we weren't bothered about the dining rooms. Choose the hake and home made chips from the lunchtime menu which were excellent and very tasty. We thought the service may suffer as both dining rooms were... More

My husband and I came here for Sunday lunch. It was delicious. The beef was cooked perfectly. It is fairly pricey but at least it lives up to the price with good quality and delicious food. Lovely bar area with an open fire. It was very cosy.

I visited at lunch time today with my parents for the first time. We arrived at 12:45 and the car park was full. Even though the restaurant was so busy we were seated quickly and our orders taken. We all ordered off the Christmas menu. The Cheshire Game pate was very tasty and nicely presented. I thought I would try... More

We visited this place last Xmas and enjoyed it a lot. Booked again for just three of us and we were served very well. Food very good, hot and nicely displayed. Very straightforward to have all our food and drinks on a fab and very quickly printed off when we were ready to pay and leave. Will go back again... More

Very regular visitors. Good food, but nothing flash. Menu changes very little - could do with more variety as the seasons change to keep the regulars gripped. That said - will continue to be a regular haunt for us! Good value for money. Beer well kept. Beer garden - lovely in the summer. There's a little play area to the... More

Went here with my husband for lunch. We have been before but not for a long time. It was 1.30pm when we arrived but food was being served all day and it was quiet in the restaurant which was nice. The food was delicious and came promptly after being ordered. I had homemade fishcakes which were chunky and full of... More

It is a nice restaurant serving good reasonably priced food. Only one thing spoilt the occasion. The waitress (who was not rushed off her feet) refused to except our drinks order and told us (mid meal) to go to bar bar to be served. We will not be returning.

Thank you for visiting us, I am sorry the waitress did not take your drinks order, however I suspect you were sitting in the bar area and table service is not offered there, this is only in the restaurant, however staff are usually obliging at the bar if you order drinks and say you are just eating, they will always...

We called in for lunch for my Father's birthday. The menu is extensive and resonably priced, it doesn't hang together though. While the food was perfectly good for a pub it wasn't as good as you can find in other gastro pubs. The pub was packed out even for a weekday lunch time service so they must be doing something...

Went here for the 1st time with the family for my birthday meal. Must admit, was pleasantly surprised and it was one of those - "why haven't we been here before" moments! The atmosphere is warm & cosy with real log fire in the bar area. You can eat in either bar or restaurant, both just as nice. This review... More
