Good Old Fashioned Pub Grub

I visited recently with family party of 10. The service was polite and prompt and the food, as it says in the review title, "good old fashioned pub grub". Portion sizes are quite substantial, so if you are a light eater then just beware. Lovely pub. Nice location. Would recommend to anyone visiting... read more

We had a delicious meal after walking on the downs. We were a bit wet and with two labs were made very welcome. The food was excellent and the beer also. The staff are very friendly. A really lovely place to visit we will be back again and again!

Have been here several times, it's the place to go when visiting parents unless it's too busy. Play area for the kids whilst waiting on food....essential in my book! Carvery is delicious with a huge selection of vegetables. I'm generally fussy with gravy but they make it lovely! It's never the same either. Kids meals are more than adequate, 2... More

I phoned to book a table, staff were polite and keen to give good service with a smile. I had the steak and ale pie, with mashed potatoes, peas and carrots. It was lovely, very hot and a very good serving.

A return visit for my Wife and I. A very busy Saturday night and we hadn't booked but were shown to a table which was cleared and reset for us instantly. Food was good but a bit expensive. I had homemade steak and ale pie which was excellent, and worthy of the 10.95 pricetag. However my Wife decided to have... More

The quality of the food was not as good as we have had in the past and the wait was really quite long - dread to think what would have happened had it been a busy day! Not impressed with the bar staff stood chatting - surely something to do?

A warm and friendly welcome in great surroundings which suits every need, pool table, restaurant and lovely outdoor seating and children's play area.. Excellent service and cannot fault the food. May be a little pricey but worth every penny.
