My partner and I booked this restaurant for Sunday lunch. On arrival we were shown immediately to our table and drink orders taken. Our drinks arrived promptly, but then we waited 25 minutes for our meal. Oh, forgot, they got the drinks order wrong, but corrected it. My partner ordered the roast beef which he said was very nice. I... More

Exceptional service and good food served in a friendly and welcoming environment. We'll definitely be back! The lobster was lovely, the braised beef fell apart it was so tender and the chips were nicely done. The wife had a roast beef dinner and portions and quality of food delivered were excellent (though in classic pub/restaurant fashion they just can't quite... More

Located in the middle of nowhere. Great friendly staff, nice cozy atmosphere. Pleasant food. This pub is more of a restaurant than a drinking house, but they still have a good selection of Ales for a beer connoisseur. We had a very pleasant mid week lunch, the food was very tasty and well presented with a good size portion. Will... More

Went here for a family 18th birthday celebration, was requested to pre order meals as not having Christmas menu, which wasn't a problem, though we ordered sirloin steaks but when we arrived was told that they had sold out? And that they didn't do sirloin steaks? Only did rib eye or fillet, online they state sirloin and took the pre-order... More

Continue to visit this venue (used to go when it was beeches) same if not higher standard of service/food. Staff are brilliant friendly, approachable, and plentiful. My husband loves the fish dishes especially the lobster I on the other hand love the various alternatives. Would definitely recommend a visit.
