A nice friendly place for lunch. A warm welcome to the dining area from the friendly staff and a comprehensive menu of choices. The gammon steak was cooked well and served with a selection of vegetables - the sirloin steak was similarly pleasing. Be warned though! The portions are HUGE! We... read more

We had lunch, the staff are very welcoming and polite. The interior is cosy and clean. Our meals were cooked really well and presented as if we were in a top restaurant. We shared a platter for two, it was awesome. My hubby recommends the sausage baguette, and it comes with crisps. The chunky chips were delicious. Very reasonable prices... More

Two very poor meals - served on chipped plates. No mid-meal "is everything OK?" as is the norm - probably they knew the answer !?. Will not be back

Sorry to hear of your experience, I am sure your problem would have been rectified had it been bought to our attention. I have spoken to all the staff on duty that day and none of them was aware of any problems either with food or service. More

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.

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.
