“Food excellent, service is not”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Just ate here today. No greeting, no instructions and had to get our own menus. It took ten mins for anyone to acknowledge our presence and the place was not even half full.

The lack of service and care continued. I had to go to the bar to order food after 15 mins. The food though was excellent, we had the pies and the house specialty is huge, almost a meal for two.

“Sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Couldn't fault the meal. Two of us had Beef and two had trout. We ate in the new extension to the pub. Very clean but lacked a little bit of atmosphere. The young waitress was very chatty and pleasant. The only thing I would say is that the bar area looked run down and it didn't have a very clean feel about it. Seen better days....Value for money....not sure. For the money, I would expect the whole place to be clean and inviting....not just the eating area.
