I have to agree with the review from Mumbles G, we had a meal here last night and it was the best we have had in a pub for a long time, perfectly cooked steak, and a yummy apple and caramel desert. When we booked we asked for a dairy free option for my wife and it was no problem.... More

Visited tonight at 7.15 and asked to see the he menu. We were astonished to be told that it would be 8.00 before we could be served. The person serving us then reeled of about 10 other people waiting for food, not really busy for a pud of its size. On a plus side there was a roaring log fire.... More

We went here with the family, we didn't have a very friendly welcome, it felt that we were putting them out to be honest. The menu was typical pub grub, it was good that they had adult, small children and slightly bigger appetite portions - definite bonus. I had a rare steak which came medium and was a bit dry,...

I think the Brewery need to get this pub sorted - it is under new management yet again and the new people do not seem to have any experience of running a pub or of providing food. The place was empty apart from our party of four and another party of four - on a Saturday night in December!! Service... More
