“More of a Bar Than Food Place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Been in here a few times now, not great for food ... in fact very very ordinary. Not recommended for food, more of a bar for the locals. Food was so poor not worth writing about. Give it a miss if you want to eat ... not acceptable really.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I live just round the corner from the pub and have driven past it many times - this week my husband and me decided to stop and have a drink. We had such a lovely warm welcome from the staff that last night we popped in for a meal. It was fantastic! Absolutely lovely service again and delicious food well presented!
One little suggestion is that it would be good to see some healthier options on the menu ... salad or simple new potatoes ... mind you it was very tasty!

“Great staff. Could be a gem with some refurb.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Just got back from a stay. Staff brilliant and could not have been more helpful. Food was cooked well and of good quality albeit a little restricted on the menu. Room was a good size but a little dated. If this place had a refurb, it would be brilliant. Overall a nice stay and would use it again no problem.

“Great customer service, great food, great night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

My partner and myself went here last night, as soon as we got there we were greeted by a lovely man who asked us where we would like to sit, he handed us our menu's and told us about the deal they had on. We were asked if we wanted drinks and if we would like a jug of water with our meal (usually anywhere else you have to ask). The wait was sufficient and the starter I had was beautifully presented and full of flavor, the same for my other half's. The time between starter and main was about 10-15 minutes, enough time for the starter to go down and to have another drink and to guarantee that what you are getting is fresh, good quality food, both my partner and myself had steak cooked blue, the amount of flavor was just mind blowing and it was cooked to our liking and neither one of us had any gristle or chewy bits, the vegetables we had with the steak were also cooked beautifully. We both had desserts which were as expected, lovely. Also we received a free bottle of wine to take home. Over all this was a very enjoyable night and a good laugh, definitely worth a visit.
