“food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Nice friendly staff but shame about the food. This is the second time I have eaten here. Didn't enjoy the menu at christmas. Food not up to much. Tried a second visit. Risotto was not a Risotto but just a heap of rice. It was put with salad (Yuk) The only thing edible was the garlic bread. The lemon cheesecake stuck to the roof of my mouth.
Friends enjoyed their meal. The decor needed updating. Dread to think what was lurking in the carpet. A cat walked around too.

“smiling staff ,good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is a "proper pub" with a good atmosphere, and staff who are always smiling and pleasant. There is a dining room or you can eat in the bar in front of a log fire .
There is a specials board, a general menu and at lunchtimes a good variety of meals two for ten pounds. Where this pub scores is proper chips not oven cooked rubbish, fresh veg, good sized portions and unpretencious. There is coffee available which is good and resonably priced. It is a long time since i have had such reasonably priced home cooked food. so many places resort to brought in massed produced microwave meals to maximise profit

“ENJOYED CHRISTMAS DINNER SO MUCH we had turkey WENT TWICE IN ONE WEEK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I was booked in for a christmas meal, everyone loved it, the portions are very substantial, great if you have a big appetite. The first time I went I had beef with shallots very tasty and it was with real gravy and yorkshire puddings all home cooked and fresh. The second time I went was with my husband and this was as good as the first time 2 days previous, this time we had turkeyit was excellent. Wouldnt hesitate to come again to this cosy pub with atmosphere.

“Local with quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Had two Sunday lunches in two weeks. We returned because the first week was so good. Indeed the second week was as good and we will be returning very soon, possibly this sunday. Added bonus is that they serve until 9pm. Get yourself down there and enjoy.

“Another dissapointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Came here with the family for a meal for my brothers birthday.

All food came out except one meal. They forgot to cook this one!! When mine came out it was cold so had to be returned.

Other people accross the restaurant had to send there meals back as well.

Expensive for the quality and quantity. Won't be bothering to reccomend or return.
