We are local to this eatery/pub and would recommend it for the good service, price and friendliness of the staff. We have also recommended it to guests that stay at our caravan on Thorpe Park

The only choice for the family to meet and eat In this area if good food, pleasant ambience and good value is required. staff always pleasant and accommodating. Would recommend to book earlier in the day if more than one table is needed in an evening due to the popularity of the place!
