This establishment has developed over the years to become a very slick and attractive venue for family meals. The 'roasts' are a star feature - not cheap but worth the slightly premium prices. Seemingly always very busy and popular, there is a range of table options and menu options. Attentive, friendly, staff offer a good style of service. A decent... More

My birthday celebration lunch was not a good experience here at all. Trying to get served in the restaurant took ages, ordered second round of drinks and these had to be requested twice before they turned up. The first course arrived after a short while but the main course took forever to arrive at our table and again we had... More

Where to start? Bar staff could not operate till, told it was fully booked in the restaurant but there were empty tables when we arrived and the same when we left after last food orders. Main courses took ages to arrive and were very poor - pasta over cooked, terrible steak with apparently twice cooked chips that were just soggy... More

Went her on a lovely Thursday evening we never go out during the week but fancied treating ourselves by having a night of the gym and cooking. When we arrived the pub was heaving. A little apprehensive we still decided to stay and eat. All the back benches were pretty much full so we thought we were lucky when we... More

We met friends at this pub. As we walked in we were very excited at the prospect of a lovely shared meal. The venue and restaurant both looked lovely. I went to the bar to order an Americano for myself and a DECAFF for my fiancée. The lovely waitress proceeded to make them and although I had to take a... More

Visited first time today for a gathering after funeral for dear friend. Bar - sherry - not sure we do that? Eventually found some in the fridge. First served in a brandy glass then in a whisky glass. The food was booked as an afternoon tea menu. We had sausage rolls sandwiches (think some of them were actually sandwich spread... More

Having ordered our drinks and food a few minutes after arrival - we were getting rather impatient when not even our drinks had arrived 20 minutes later. Having caught the waiters eye and reminded him, we waited another ten minutes before our drinks finally arrived. After a further 30 minutes with no sign of our food a waiter finally arrived... More

Went of a Saturday lunchtime. This was our first time, and most likely our last time. The restaurant of the Inn is modern and clean, but the service is terribly slow and inefficient. The food just overpriced and small portioned. And even worse was the slow inattentive service; in fact we waited 15 min until the empty dishes were removed.... More

This hotel is very quaint. The rooms are unique and comfortable but the internet access is very poor. Rooms at the front can be noisy and there is a railway close by - so train noise can be heard. The restaurant and food are very good quality and the menu is extensive. Car parking at the front of the hotel... More
