Lovely pub, with a great menu, scampi and chips can be recommended. Very friendly staff and busy on a Sunday so worth booking in advance for a table. Plenty of space inside and outside for when the weather is nice.

I had chicken fajitas and my husband had the meat and eat burger and both were very nice!! Staff were very pleasant, although they were very busy. Will be... More

Very disappointed with the Sunday Roast. Vegetables were undercooked. Potatoes were crispy on the outside but solid and undercooked inside. I asked for the meat to be well done but it was served pink and was more fat than meat.

Different colour scheme, but food not consitent one day very good next time you would think you was somewhere different. Regardless of when in the week go in, always out of something.

In the middle of the thick batter coating were some very small pieces of crab meat immitation,and the chips were... More

We ate our first meal here and were definitely not disappointed. My husband enjoyed fish and chips and my daughter and I ate Beef Ale Pie with Mash (mashed potatoes); both meals were tasty. This is where we learned that in most British pubs, food is ordered at the bar and a server brings it out...we quickly got used to... More

Ate there two weeks ago and the food was good even though as Lindsay said vegetarian options poor. Went yesterday and you would have thought in a different place:- Not got any fish for their main fish and chip dish. No custard to go with their jam roly poly - gave it a build up but not the same with... More

I've been here many times over the years but the menus have changed in the last few months to include an even more dire selection of vegetarian food than was served previously which means I will be eating here less. I counted roughly 30 main meat dishes and only 4 vegetarian - all which could include meat for an additional... More
