Birthday meal for a work colleague. Table booked in advance for a Friday night. Service was excellent and the food very good. Ranging from steaks to curry everyone was really pleased with there meal. Catering for children's meals and smaller portion meals for those who do not eat large amounts. Will certainly eat here again.

We went for a meal on a Saturday before Christmas. I was disappointed to see it has pretty much become a chain pub with a pretty generic menu of stuff brought in. The service was mixed. One member of staff very good. The other not so much. We had to attract attention and go to bar to order several things... More

I attended this restaurant and I must admit I enjoyed every minute of it. Our waitress Jess was brilliant so friendly and so efficient. We all had Sunday dinners and to be honest it was delicious, the meat and vegetables were cooked perfectly and the Yorkshire puddings was big and lovely. The desserts were great too, I had the pistachio... More

Pleased we booked online! The restaurant was very busy! It's lovely to have a 'real' fire as it adds to the excellent ambience of the relaxed, yet stylish dining rooms. The staff were welcoming, helpful and polite. A good choice on the menu including vegetarian meals - my falafel burger was very tasty! My dining companions had the haddock: two... More

Had christmas lunch here which was excellent. Have used a number of the Brunning and Price pubs over the last few years and this is as good as all of the others we have experienced. Restaurant was full and some of the parties large in number, but staff were attentive and food delicious. Will continue to use this chain for... More
