I was visiting my sister who has recently moved to the village and decided to give this a go, as we couldn't be bothered to go into Darlington as planned. Turned out to be a good choice as the food was excellent: the deserts especially were very good. The service was friendly and attentive: despite the pub being very busy.... More

I had beef one week and pork the next and I found the pork the best as I prefer beef more well done (I should of maybe requested this). The veg on both occasions was also fresh and slightly different both times. I'd probably... More

Pub food tends to taste the same... everything on the menu the same if liquified you could drink it and come out just as satisfied. The food here breaks the trend, tasty, great portions and well presented. Steak was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Served with the most amazing chunky chips, salad and very crunchy onion rings. Great food but... More

Thankfully, nothing has changed and we again had an absolutely fantastic meal, being looked after by the excellent staff, who if memory serves me (and my wife) correctly, were... More
