Lovely food and service

Really helpful and friendly staff, especially when we were in a large group. Had pre-booked food however when we arrived with an extra guest and someone wanting to change their order this was arranged with no problems. Delicious food, large portions and lots of choice.

Visited lunchtime today with family members. Excellent menu, we were spoilt for choice and had difficulty deciding what to have. The food was delicious, very generous portions, we had no room for a dessert! The restaurant is tastefully decorated and we had a lovely big round table near the window. Staff very friendly and very obliging when we wanted photos... More

First visit in a number of years; it looks fresh and bright throughout. Several different dining areas to choose from from formal to sofas. A pretty incredible menu choice with daily specials, bar snacks and a very good Mon - Fri choice for £5.95. I had the chicken curry and rice from the value board; generous portion and excellent.

Never disappointing, this pleasant pub has good staff who will always look after you. Quite a wide choice of food on main menu and specials board at reasonable prices. Good choice of beer and at the time we visited nicely decorated dining area.

Booked in here with my wife and two friends during the lead up to Christmas so it was very busy with party bookings. Time between ordering and food on the table was commendably short and the food was superbly cooked and the helpings generous. The staff despite being obviously rushed off their feet were all very friendly and polite, we... More

A great pub serving an excellent varied menu. So good we ended up going twice with different family members over the same weekend! I had the stuffed pork belly from the specials board, which was amazing, and on the Sunday I had a roast which was just as nice. Some pubs seem to favour quantity over quality. At the Carpenters...

A strange pub/restaurant that I am not sure if it’s quirky, eclectic or needs an identity check. If you go to the pub in the daytime it looks like most pubs, but at night time you would swear it was a night club with very garish blue LED lighting around the outside outline of the building & similar LED type...
