Recently went there for a family re-union meal ( family home from Australia) 10 adults & 4 children Good choice on the menu, something for everyone in our party even the fussy ones! we even changed a couple of things with no bother. The waitress was friendly & helpful & the restaurant was newly decorated. Kids meals were served first.... More

Complained and was offered a free drink. I understand that they have a new... More

Food is good, standard pub fare. Always friendly and welcoming and happy to accommodate you at late seating. This is our local and my one request is that they get a decent wine menu...landlord did get some small bottles in for wider selection but no sauvignon blanc!!!!!

We turned up without a booking and just as service was finishing on the off chance. Despite they had started closing they were very accommodating especially to my Mum who is currently in a wheelchair. The premises are wheel chair friendly by the way. The carvery was excellent, good choice of very fresh veg and all well cooked, and they... More

The dining area is clean and attractively set out. The food is mediocre and I had to send my pie back because the crust was all burnt.
