We brought some friends from overseas for dinner in the restaurant last Saturday. We received a warm welcome and the waitress went out of her way to be friendly and helpful. We all chose different meals and we all were not only pleased with our choice but thought the food was well prepared and good value. The fresh fish specials... More

Visted on a Saturday night with my wife. Warm welcome from the waitress and shown to our booked table very promptly. Once we had ordered they're seemed to be a bit of a wait for our starters to come out. The freshly baked breads came out cold and the lamb wrap was dissapointing, the meat was a bit dry and... More

Friendly welcome, excellent beers, great food with good variety. Lots of fresh fish and traditional fayre coupled with some authentic Thai and tasty Asian cuisine. Ingredients are genuinely local and truly supports the local community. Would recommend wholeheartedly.

Booked a table for Saturday with my partner and 2 small children. Idealic location and ample parking. Nice looking pub. On arrival, good selection of real ales always go down well. Large dining area. Well selected menu, good choice of fish and noted that ingredients were chosen from local businesses, which is nice. Service was good throughout the evening. Had... More

A group of 20 walkers stopped here for a midweek lunch having pre-ordered the food before we left. The staff were very helpful and we didn't wait long for our meals which we all enjoyed. The garden was a lovely place to relax after a walk in the beautiful countryside.

Old fashioned feel with genuine country pub atmosphere. A mix of regulars drinking at one of the bars and tables full of couples, groups or families. Staff happy but rushed off their feet so no time to discuss the dishes on the menu. We were 2 adults & 2 x 14 yr old kids. Starters of Bacon, black pudding salad... More

Having been recommended by a friend to visit this pub for a nice Sunday roast we visited as a couple on Sunday. Given it was a Sunday and I had made no reservations I expected to not be provided with a table straight away. However I did expect a friendly welcoming with an alternative option such as waiting or having... More

Not sure where this one came from!! On busy days, we have a policy of asking customers if they would like a drink while they wait for a table, and certainly for a table of 2 would have been given this option. I do not recall any table of 2 being refused, and have asked the waiting staff that work... More

Out in the middle of nowhere but we'll worth the drive. As previously reviewed staff not too accommodating however the waitress was very nice. Took a long time for the food to arrive both initially and between courses, however when it did it couldn't be faulted and the portions were a healthy size. Atmosphere not that brilliant but a nice... More

Many Many thanks for your review, and really pleased that you enjoyed the food and glad that you thought it was worth the drive.
