The atmosphere was very warm and staff were friendly. Food was lovely, if a little on the pricey side. They have plenty of space, including a nice courtyard which has been enclosed, to make a lovely, bright dining area.

I have eaten here many times. It is my fathers favourite eatery. but we went last Saturday at lunchtime to celebrate his birthday and what a disappointment, they had changed the menu. It used to be that at lunchtime, you would be offered the a la carte menu plus the lunch specials. Now however, you are offered a very limited... More

We last ate here in April and decided not to return. However, my mum was staying in the hotel for a couple of nights and we ate there again for lunch. I had the fish & chips and again was disappointed. The chips were good, but heavily salted (why can't they be left unsalted - people are quite capable of... More

We walked into the village and found this lovely pub with a roaring fire and sat right by the fire in comfy chairs. It was drizzling outside and was great to find this haven. I had scones and tea, my husband had a sandwich and a pint both were really tasty. We were served by a Pleasant bar person.

A selection of breads was also highly enjoyed. Mains: belly of pork good, linguini also sirloin steak good flavour but a little chewy. Too... More

The food was good maybe a change in ,menu a couple of times a week would have been good, as we ate for the three nights. Service was good, but slow, but we were not in a rush.

A group of us had dinner. Excellent service, nice decor. Menu good choices. Most of our food was good, although a couple of the steaks weren't perfect but to be fair we didn't take issue. Waitress was lovely and smiley. Negative point is the use of boards, personally I hate them. So our starter and main were served this way.... More

We had an early (6pm) dinner in the back room, under the glass ceiling. I had a wonderful fish and chips; my husband, a burger. Both were very generous portions and the service was good.
