We always have a decent meal here, nothing fancy, but good pub grub. The staff are always friendly, even when busy. They also have a garden where you can eat or just have a drink which is great in summer as it faces south so you can enjoy the sunshine. I also go there often for a girly lunch with... More

Enjoyable afternoon. The only downside was that one of our party of 6 steak was overdone. He therefore had to wait for another steak to be cooked which meant he ate on his own as such. The restaurant did take the steak off of the bill.

Excellent service but staff seem rushed of their feet trying to deal with a very busy restaurant . Could do with more staff at busy times. Staff very friendly and professional .

Lovely restaurant but theyve put the prices up alot. Most the staff are happy & friendly. It has a garden in the bar area, which is lovely in the summer. But if you plan on going on a friday or saturday evening you will need to book. The food is nice.

I meet old school friends here on a regular basis, and have always had good food with good service. As we always have plenty to talk about I've never noticed if the service was slow!
