Called in here on the way back from splash landings with my family and had a Sunday lunch. The food was excellent, the staff were very pleasant and the place itself was lovely. Would definitely recommend.

The restaurant is a very nice place to eat good food and atmosphere. The people and staff are very friendly and helpful.The bar area is Oldie worldie ok. The toilets need a good make over. All in all a good pub to eat at any time.

Went here for a quiet night out for a bite to eat me and the other half. Were very disappointed as were placed in the middle of a roudy bunch that had visited alton towers!! However we ordered and really enjoyed the food! Steaks were lovely! Maybe a bit more consideration could be given about where people get sat !... More

Stayed here for two nights while visiting Alton Towers . As a family of 5 I can honestly say that we were all impressed with the overall service received. Food was excellent, very reasonable prices, rooms were lovely and the people are very welcoming. Would definitely stay again!

We stopped here while staying near by on a weekend to Alton Towers. The pub is lovely inside and set in nice surroundings, we had a table by the window overlooking a field of cows. Staff were friendly and the menu extensive yet the kids menu is very limited. Food took a while to come but was in no hurry... More

Having a long day at Alton Towers we were already for some home cooked pub grub. If you want home cooked chips ask! or you will be given chilled! Very disappointed with the meal unless you request extras on your plate like Peas salad etc. You will only be given what you asked for and you wont have been offered.... More

Dined here one evening whilst camping nearby. Lovely pub and the staff were great! The children's menu is very limited and the adult menu is more like a restaurant menu than a pub menu. Never the less, the food was great! Mains, desserts and soft drinks for 2 adults and 3 children came to £60

The service was brilliant, bit of a wait for food but well worth it. Choice was very good. I really don't know what else to say. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It was very busy but we werenot made to feel we had to hurry.

Food very nice and not normal pub menu! It was very busy the night we called in the staff were friendly. The only thing I would say the kids menu is not to good my kids couldn't find anything they liked so just ordered chips and I heard the little boy at next table say the same! It's quite pricey...
