I took a customer here for a pub lunch. It was mid-week and when we entered we were asked if we had booked, luckily there were two free tables, so no problem! The staff are very friendly and attentive. As mentioned by others you choose your dish from the extensive chalk board menu. This is a pub, not a fine... More

We visited this lovely country pub for lunch, it took several minutes to select the food from an extensive menu, which is only written on a chalk board. The pub was busy with a party but the food was still served promptly and was piping hot. There was an error with the order which was soon rectified. The staff are... More

We use the restaurant often to entertain overseas visitors, due to the extensive menu and good quality food. Once again we were not let down, having a really good meal and service. The Lamb shoulder was excellent.

A really nice place to have dinner at. The menu is pretty big, the food is good. This isn't fine dining but the service is always friendly. Great place to meet up with a few friends and have a nice meal.

Always get a warm welcome and good service and prices very good too. Menu had a few new items which was good to see, would just like to see some new puddings as nothing has... More

Took my father in law here for his birthday. All four of us had a Sunday roast, 3 twin roasts (pork and beef) and one beef. The food was very good. Well cooked and well presented. The size of the meal was good and filled us all up. Still went for a pudding after though this was probably a mistake... More

My steak was cooked to perfection, my husband enjoyed the kangaroo steak, and my father in law finished off the most delicious and tasty lamb. The menu is huge, fresh local fish a speciality. I always gage a good restaurant on their steak.....terrific! We... More
