Lovely meal and atmosphere.

We had supper here as a family. We had four different main courses. Scampi, Steak, Roast Chicken and Chicken & Leek pie. All nicely cooked, served with a smile in clean and friendly surroundings. Good pub grub, reasonably priced in pleasant surroundings.

I had steak with grilled mushrooms, tomatoes and peas - served with a side salad, and it was perfectly cooked and every mouthful was delicious. The service was spot on too - not intrusive, but attentive. My husband was very happy with his pie and chips, which he said was delicious, but I think he rather envied me my steak!

This is a pretty decent pub/hotel/restaurant. Two of us chose the game pie and, in fact, they sent the wrong thing (steak and kidney pudding). As it happens, it was not immediately obvious to us (it could have been kidney amongst the game) but, when we queried it, they could not have been more helpful. Overall, this was a very... More

The food was top class, one of the best meals I have eaten in a restaurant for a long time, the food was well presented and as a party of 16 we all had different meals, each was served together so we didn't have to wait for all of us to be served. The staff were very professional, this is... More

We recently visited for my father's retirement and were quietly impressed with the evening. The food was enjoyable and the location of the restaurant at the back of the hotel was in a nice setting with interesting, homely decor. The service was very good as was the organisation which dealt with our part of nearly 30 efficiently and politely.

This was our first time at this place. Very disappointing. The food was not up to standard. It didn't feel like we were eating freshly prepared food. The place was very quiet on Sunday lunchtime. Will not be coming back.
