I had pre-booked this restaurant for my husband's birthday along with our friends, as he wanted to sample steak on a stone. The table for four was booked several days in advance and at this time I mentioned that we travelling through for steak on a stone on Saturday evening. Whilst ordering drinks I noticed a sign in the kitchen... More

After pre booking a table for four for a friends birthday and requesting steak on the stone for all our guests, we were told that the booking was in. We paid £15 on a taxi to get us there, to find a sign saying the restaurant had ran out of sirloin steak, fillet steak, potato skins etc. After speaking to... More

First time I've been along in a number of years and the food was absolutely delicious. Lots of meat and had a really home made feel rather than the churned out junk I've had elsewhere. Will most certainly return in the near future. 10/10.

I have had a few meals here and each time they were top quality and reasonably priced. I visited recently with family members from Australia who commented that this was the best food they had during their visit to the UK.Good choice of drinks too.

Visited on New Years Day for a meal with friends. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table by a friendly waitress who took our drinks order and left us to look at the good choice menu. The food arrived and we were not disappointed, very tasty and enough on the plate. The waitress kept coming to the table... More

We've been eating here for over 6 years now. Its a rare establishment that is consistently good and this place definitely is. The friendly, professional service, the food (fresh, homemade, good value, choice of daily specials), the drinks (wide choice, well kept, good real ales, massive gin selection) and the clientele/atmosphere all add-up to made this a reassuringly satisfying choice...

Thank you to management for making us feel very welcome tonight even though there were 14 of us and they were extremely busy. They were very accommodating and friendly. Would highly recommend this pub to all my friends for any occasion. Thank you.
