I have eaten here twice - once for a Christmas meal and the second time recently with my partner. On both occasions the food has been excellent as has the service. The décor and atmosphere in this pub are great and the food is reasonably priced considering the high standard. Will definitely be going back and I am very difficult... More

Food average, service very slow. Reserved a table and were given one sat right next to the bar, which felt odd. The table we were given was so low that 3 members of the party couldn't physically get their legs underneath it; it would have lifted off the floor and been balancing on our thighs. We were offered another table,... More

Your rather harsh review did not make good reading for us, particularly your comment on our 'mediocre' food. One only has to read the numerous glowing reviews we have received on this site about our food to know that it is anything but mediocre, therefore I would wholeheartedly dispute your comments. It is regrettable that you felt that the service... More

Went here today for my birthday..first visit for years and was pleasantly surprised.Had the veggie nut roast..more than I could eat...already had starters of haloumi fritters which was divine..No room for sweet but a lovely liquor coffee. Very pleasant staff and good food at a reasonable price..will go again.

A hidden gem with a huge car park located in idyllic surroundings A warm welcome at the bar with contrasting modern restaurants alongside more traditional oak beamed rooms The menu is extensive and all at very reasonable prices The food is deliciously well cooked and all staff were very friendly and professional

We went here years ago and for various reasons have not been back since. This will now be a regular haunt, the food and service were good, some main courses were a little expensive for a pub. They also do not seem to do a set price for so many courses so the bill can mount up but eating locally... More

Excellent meal on Friday night. We ate in the bar area and both the restaurant and bar were busy but service was excellent - very friendly and attentive for such a busy evening. Food was delicious - 2 of us had the "special" sea bass with a mustard mash and creamy sauce - divine. Good evening all round. Would recommend.
