Two visits in a row

A Sunday lunch for 8 - including two children - was such an enjoyable experience that we went back two weeks later for dinner with an overseas friend. Good, friendly service, excellent food, all at a very reasonable price. Will definitely visit again.

Very nice and friendly people. An authentic English food. Very tasty and well presented. We had risotto, grilled king prawns and amazing burger. Everything was good. Shame we don't live near by :-(

Good was lovely and tasty. It's a shame the food doesn't come with some veg, this had to be ordered separately. Service was slow was the fault.

First visit and couldn't fault anything. Wonderful food and attentive staff. When you have people waiting at the bar for tables to come available you know when things are being done right.

Took our two American friends here to experience a truly English pub. One had fish and chips, the other a burger (she's fussy!) they loved the atmosphere here, low ceilings, funny posters and bric a brac around the walls, all adding to the experience. The open log fire and lighting add to the ambience. Staff are very attentive and helpful... More

Tried this pub as it seemed to have good reviews and looked lovely from the outside - nice enough on the inside too but disappointed by the food. Paying £60 for a starter and main for two (only one drink each!), was expecting a little more but the food, although looked reasonably well presented, lacked any real flavour and given... More

We have visited three times this years so far (2015) and are sad that we did not find this place sooner. The food is excellent, the staff very friendly and to top it all, there is a dog friendly area too!
