“Wish we'd never found it!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

After being rated so highly, we were expecting something pretty good, however after struggling to find the place, which appeared to be in somebody's back garden, we soon came to regret our decision to go there.

We were served promptly; the menu is a real blast from the past... Prawn cocktail or melon with raspberry sauce to start anyone? The food was very basic and terribly overpriced for what you got. My sirloin steak was tough and everything was under seasoned.

We didn't bother to stay for dessert, but were in for another shock when we got the bill; £5 for a lager shandy!!!

This place is a bit of a joke and I would have been better off at a Harvester than here.

“brilliant tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

A small gem in the middle of nowhere. Booking is essential. The food is local, homecooked and tasty. You get a plateful and are attended to by excellent staff. i usually go for a mixed grill which is not on the menu but can be ordered when booking. It consists of sausages, gammon, steak , lamb cutlet, liver, kidney, chips, fried egg, peas, tomatoes, mushrooms and is mountainous. I cant recommend this place enough.

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Great food and an above average menu. Not a Michelin experience, service just "OK", but still pretty good overall.
