Really good value

Very nice pub setting offering traditional food, often with outdoor BBQ in the summer [weather permitting!] Could do with a wider choice of beers maybe but the service is always friendly and the food is very good value.

Having heard a few friends talk abut 'The Taps' - a pub I hadn't been in for maybe 15 years despite it being just 20 minutes away. After a lovely riverside walk we arrived just before 2pm and chose a table inside. Our little dog Bo was made very welcome and provided with a small bowl of biscuit treats and... More

As we had just returned from a short break and it was Sunday....the cupboards were bare!! we decided to pop out for Sunday lunch. For reasons that are irrelevant here we have been trying eateries in the area for Sunday lunch (4 in all) and quite frankly some of them were dire - I couldn't bring myself to write a... More

Not what it used to be. The nut burger was over done. The meat burger was solid. The chips were over-cooked. Couldn't decide whether it was all just old and reheated or badly cooked. Shame. It used to be great for trad food. Also expensive!

Had a fabulous roast here - HUGE pieces of tender beef, lovely yorkshires and great gravy! We went for the typical Sunday Roast, but any of the starters and mains and specials sounded incredible! The servers were attentive and polite, and the atmosphere was great.

Being very much au fait with the ambience and menu of The Vaults, we recently booked for dinner, having not visited for a while. However, we weren't told at the time of booking that there would be barbecue food only, which was a problem as it was not what we were expecting, and we had vegetarians among us. As there... More

We'd reserved a table as we were unsure how busy it would be on a Wednesday. It was relatively quiet but the service was very friendly and we weren't rushed. The food was amazing and the portion sizes huge, shame we didn't know this before ordering starters, but we managed to eat everything! A very relaxed atmosphere helped a lovely... More

A lovely lunch with the family. Plenty of meat and fresh vegetables. Yorkshire puddings to die for. Would recommend it.
