Well here we go again. Now under new management, Pete and Martyn. A bit hit and miss at the beginning but improving by the day. The locals think the pub is great and after sacking the chef things have improved dramatically. Food is good. Lots of home cooked specials. Give it a try and i am sure you... read more

Although this lovely traditional pub looks a little tired and need of some TLC we found the staff very friendly and the food was excellent value, 2 meals for £10. We had pie, chips and peas. The pies were delicious and the chips NOT frozen, this is something you do not come across very often. We did not have to... More

Another change of management. Now closed on mondays. How long can this go on? Such a shame to see this once busy spot deteriorate so quickly. Mitchells (the brewery) should be ashamed of themselves.

We used to visit here years ago when in the area and thought we would try it again although we knew it was under new management. Never again!!!! The 'menu' ( a tatty stained piece of paper in a folder) was very limited typical pub food but that wasn't too much of a problem. My husband ordered a beer from... More

Its been a while since I was last here and was looking forward to my visit, but the place has sadly deteriorated. There were only two others in when we arrived but the food still took around half an hour to come, which wasn't worth waiting for - very mediocre, the Steak sandwich had more gristle that meat, and our...
