Booked the restaurant for 8 30 on Saturday night it was very busy, we had to wait for our table so we had a drink at the bar not a very pleasant experience being in the way of the waiters and stood at the side of other diners. The meal itself was disappointing the spare ribs bordering on cold, we... More

My wife and I visited for Sunday lunch last month (Feb 2015). This was my first visit in a number of years, but I'd seen the article in one of the Sunday Paper supplements (The Top 25 places in the UK for Sunday lunch). So - that gave the challenge for us to try it out. I can't comment on... More

Not one to leave reviews normally - or use capital letters in print :-) but I feel strongly about this experience. A friend and I headed to the Clog prior to the cinema. I had not been for a while, it is very local to us and we often go out for a bite to eat together so were looking... More

Been here about 3 times in last 18 months. Have had a really good, average and bad experience. Pros - The pub is lovely and clean, nicely decorated, plenty of room around tables and loads of parking outside. Staff are polite and friendly. There is loads of choice on the menu. Cons - food quality varies. Unfortunately on the last... More

Visited the restaurant for my birthday and had a very enjoyable experience. Our waitress Florence was very friendly and helpful. They were also very accomodating and flexible with the menu, happy to do a chicken breast with the trimmings from the roast. The potatoes could have been better, they were a bit hard on the outside but not crispy. Bit... More

We had heard great things about the restaurant but on arrival the atmosphere was a little frosty and the building was very cold we had to keep our coats on for a while until we warmed up . The food was ok but not as good as we have had in other establishments

My wife had been told about this country pub by well heeled colleagues and thought it was worth a try. On arrival at 5pm the place was near empty and we ordered drinks for ourselves and our 3 children at the bar. The demeanour of the person serving was clipped (possibly front of house manager). First impressions, not good. My... More
