Nice Food but the service lets it down ... Again

We have eaten here, many many times over the years, but the service really lets this place at times. We went there today's for a Sunday lunch. We ordered the bread and dipping oils as soon as we got there as we knew there would be a wait for dinner. After waiting 20 minutes for this it finally... read more

Vegetables were perfect and flavours were great. Starters were ok but not really necessary as the main was so good. Highly recommended... But do book it gets busy!

Nice clean pub with pleasant staff, comfy seating and open surroundings. We had prawn cocktail starter very disappointing! It comprised of no more than 6 prawns smothered in a sickly cocktail sauce and a oversized lettuce leaf. This was accompanied with a little pot of some other sauce Why????? No cucumber or tomato no brown bread a complete waste of... More

Family booking for 12 - as the only booking available on Sunday was for 18:00hrs, we rang again to confirm the 'The Sunday Roast' would still be available. What a disaster, after taken our orders the poor waiter had to keep coming back apologising that this and that had run out. We must have changed our order 4 times and... More

People are more obliged to leave bad reviews than good reviews. I have had fantastic visits here, but I've had more disappointing ones. Our lunch was warm and chewy, I think it had been left waiting. All the side garnish is the same, just dry and unappetising. I'd recommend trying , sitting outside on a warm day is lovely. This... More

My experience here has been very hit and miss. The food is often very good and the service is quick. On father's day this year we visited and had the set menu which was good value for money. The food did not come exactly as described (no sweet chilli dip with the fish starter, no option of mashed potatoes with... More

Great choice of food, ales and drinks. Light and airy even though in an old building. Great for families and couples.

We were a big party so ordered ahead of time. The food was very good for a busy pub with loads of people eating lunch there.

We came across this place by accident. When we went in we were asked if we had booked, when we said no, we were told we could eat in the bar, but it would of been nice to be offered a table if we waited in the bar. We ordered our mains and starters, which were all absolutely fine with... More

I have been to this pub before and really enjoyed the food and service. Unfortunately, I came with a friend on Sunday and was very disappointed. I chose the fish dish which I should have sent back. The overall taste and presentation was poor and the prawns when shelled were dirty and should have been peeled and cleaned prior to... More
