We have not visited this pub since it changed hands and were very impressed. We shared a pate for starter which was lovely and by husband had the pie (beef and guiness) and a pint offer for £10 which he said was fantastic.

We ate in the restaurant when we were staying in the hotel. We were very impressed by the great variety of dishes on the menu and also extra specials. I chose the seafood and was surprised by how much I got! My husband really liked his venison also. We were too full to have dessert, but the choice was very... More

We had a really nice meal here. Staff were really friendly and the new owners have transformed this lovely place from a dull, indifferent pub to a thriving and enjoyable inn/pub/restaurant. Glad we visited..

We have been here a few times with family and our small children, the menu is great and accommodates our preferences also the children's menu has a vegetarian option. The landlord is really friendly and even made up a fresh fruit salad which wasn't on the menu for our children without any fuss. It is rare to find a pub... More

Very hearty meal in average surroundings, elevated by the lovely landlord who was really welcoming. We really enjoyed our meal, and highly recommend the cabbage and squash mash - lovely.

Had a meeting with old work colleagues here today. The staff were very patient as we didn't know how many were coming and what time they would arrive! Anyway, 6 of us had a very enjoyable reunion. I had fish and chips and the meal was faultless. Although I can't speak for the others I think that they all enjoyed... More

My wife and I were staying very close to here and so decided that we'd try it for the Sunday lunch. We arrived just after they opened at 12 o'clock and each had a drink. The place was virtually empty at that time, and we were greeted by the staff and our orders taken within a very short time. I... More

Good Sunday lunch in pleasant surroundings with plenty of parking space. Friendly staff without being overly pushy. Food was good and not too pricey. Would visit again.
