Great Sunday lunch

made a spur of the moment decision to stop for Sunday lunch, so glad we did. Lovely roast beef with all the trimmings followed by sponge pudding and custard yum...not cheap but well worth it.

Having dined here before we were looking forward to a nice meal on Sunday evening. Our waitress for the night Carly was lovely, very friendly & attentive. The menu has changed since our last visit & was less than inspiring. Both our starts were lovely but very small, literally served on a side plate. We both had steak for our... More

Been coming here since it opened, food was always beautiful & service was friendly & attentive. However recently its been rather disappointing, the staff have been standing about chatting and aren't helpful or that friendly and the food, smaller portions yet raised prices and just doesn't seem like the chef has as much care. Such a shame, I really hope... More

On our first visit we were very impressed with the standard of food and service , the waitress ( a cheerful young blond girl ) was extreamly attentive and had a great sense of humour and went out of her way to be helpful. On our second visit last night the food was once again very good but all four... More

Nice bright contemporary pub with relaxed feel. I enjoyed the food.My chicken and ham hock pot pie was delicious and came with proper chips. My partner enjoyed the haddock she was served. The service could have been quicker and more attentive.

Visited with friends ( a group of 6). The food was lovely, I could not fault it. However, I do feel that it is a little over priced. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food came out at the same time and everyone enjoyed it.

Had high hopes but well off the mark. Very disappointed with venue, food and service standards. It really didn't sedm that anyone was interested and that customers weren't important at all.
