Just visited The Lightwood Tavern now the new management have taken over. We decided that we would give the food a try. What a lovely meal both myself and husband had. I had the steak and hubby had the ribs. Both were cooked to perfection. Definitely be eating there again as the price is also really reasonable too.

Sorry but the food was poor , the dirty dishcloth on the bar put me off instantly. The tables and bar were sticky and some of the bar staff were not as well turned out as they could be.
