I phoned up on the morning and was fitted in for a Sunday dinner for two. The meal was served quickly and was lovely with vegetables cooked to perfection. We followed it up with a desert each which were both well presented and delicious. We will be back.

Now on my fourth visit and will keep going back, as little to beat the quality, service and price in the area. The "two can dine for £9.95" offer is amazing value - covers opening through to 5pm six days a week. The meat and potato pie, and burger and chips are personal favourites. Quality is great, as is the... More

I've been a couple of times recently and omitted to post a review. Last night I went again with five friends. Not one... More

The Fish and Chips in this pub are the best that my family have taste anywhere. they pass the test. The batter is amazingly crispy and the chips just perfect. Mushy Peas are stunning. Sunday lunch is superb and the many and varied meals on the menus are delivered to perfection. Wines are just right, there is the right level... More

Cozy gastro pub with excellent food you would have to go a country mile to beat. I have dined here at least once a month for many years, the menu is simple yet diverse enough to suit most tastes. Always great daily specials on the board with quality ingredients all served in a friendly & relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended for... More
