Pub food at reasonable prices

Very pleasant "local" pub selling good food at reasonable prices. The dining area was full of locals on a mid-week evening - surely a good recommendation!

4 adults and one 2 year old. We had not booked but ate early for dinner so were able to secure a table. This pub/restaurant appears popular with the locals, there is a friendly atmosphere, and good service. Choice of drinks was good. The lasagne was excellent and the burgers were positively huge and came with several options and extras.... More

Menu limited and unadventurous. Chips from a frozen packet....really big portions but nothing special. Alright for everyday food....not as special occasion. Pub clean and nice. Service good. A bit pricey for quality of food served.

Thank you for leaving a review, but just to ensure my other customers- we do NOT use frozen chips More

First time my family stopped in, there were only 5 of us. Great food with many choices (the fish and the sausages were well liked), decent service. We later had a family gathering of over 20 people which went very well. The food took a bit of time, but not that long considering how many people ordered so close together.... More

We stopped here for lunch on Saturday on the way home from a holiday in the Peak District. We were attracted by the "last pub for 40 miles" sign. The place was not particularly full and things started well with a good menu choice and decent selection of beers. We ordered crusted salmon with saute potatoes and veg plus a... More

My husband and I have been on a number of occasions to this pub and never been disappointed. The staff are very friendly and helpful, it's clean and comfy. Now the best bit. The food is delicious.
