However I wasn't happy with they "keep your bank card" behind the bar if you wanted to run a tab and pay when you had finished. I declined that option as I was... More

This attractive pub restaurant with childrens' playground and even a fishing lake for the summer used to be great local favourite for very good food and beer served in fantastic surroundings. However, a succession of poor landlords saw it fall into severe decline. The present management have only been there a short while but have already began the long hard... More

Ate here years ago and vowed never to return as the food left a lot to be desired. Anyway, gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried again recently. The location is very relaxing and loads for young kids to keep occupied. The staff were very friendly and helpful but unfortunately the food had not improved. Such a shame.
