Good food Great service

Greeting very friendly food and service first class. Being disabled they thoughtfully sited us by the disabled toilet which for me was perfect and the toilet it self was excellant, pity more restarants are not like this.

I visited here this week as we had been here before and they have a beautiful outside area. The weather has been gorgeous and we thought we would use the opportunity to take advantage. We walked in and they were clearly very busy. We decided to sit in the newly refurbished garden to the rear of the building and settled... More

What a nightmare experience. Ages to queue to order food and drinks, crap food (£10 for an awful salad; with warm limp iceberg lettuce), over cooked meat and ages to wait for the food. Not at all good. The only redeeming feature was the staff; they were seriously understaffed yet they did their best. They were pleasant and helpful At... More

We had booked a table for 3 for lunch. It took a while for our drinks orders to arrive - it was a sweltering day so we really needed them. After 45 mins of waiting for our meals we chased it up and then still had to wait a further 15mins until they finally arrived. No apology for the wait.... More

This was maybe my 4th or 5th visit here, and we've always come back because of the lovely atmosphere and beautiful location. However, this last visit was a real let down. I'm not sure whether it was down to the fact there seemed to be almost no staff at hand whatsoever, but the service was terrible. Aside from the poor... More

We stayed at the Inn for 1 night for our friends wedding. Room good size and adequate for our needs. Breakfast is included in the rate which was toast, fruit and cereals. You can pay for a hot breakfast. Food in the pub was ok...we had 3 platters to share between 6 which was fine for a light bite. Overall... More

The rib eye was stringy the duck was excellent. Healthy, not too large portions. The garden is a bit overgrown and had few cleanliness issues. The service is unpersonal. The waiter has not had time for a short chat and forgot to bring the dessert menu, so we vent elsewhere for that. The food was good, but the atmosphere is... More

We were lucky enough to be taken here for dinner by our nephew and his wife with whom we were staying for a couple of nights. From the minute we walked in, I liked the décor. There were comfy seats to sit in and have a drink before we went in to dinner, and the waitress was attentive - bringing... More
