“Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

After reading mixed reviews and staying local to the area, we decided to walk to the pub one evening for an evening meal. We arrived and were met with a warm and friendly welcome. We decided to eat in the restaurant rather than the pub. The restaurant was very busy and we secured a table. There was a large choice of dishes on the specials board however you had to get up to read them and I felt rushed as everyone was standing and reading the board. The food arrived after quite a long wait however we were eagerly awaiting our freshly prepared food so it didn't matter. My husband opted for the beef and ale pie along with the chips (cooked in beef dripping). My son had a hamburger and chips. The pie arrived with an overcooked pastry top along with chips that looked like cooked in old oil. The hamburger was a small burnt lump in the center of a very large 'buttered' bun. I ordered mushroom ravioli which was very nice and not over-cooked however it was advertised with a side salad which never made it out of the kitchen. The desserts did not disappoint however needless to say it was our one and only visit to the pub for food.

“Great food, drinks expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Very good steaks and specials and generous home cooked chips. Drinks dear and shame that there was no landlord to great diners.

“Average for a pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Food ok but nothing special - average taste and quality, would only eat here is passing and would not go out of my way to do so. Always busy but as it is the only pub in the village this is not surprising.

“NOT GOOD VISIT”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

On arrival it was clear that this was not a good choice. We had booked and were meeting friends so difficalt to change. Restaurant was very full and a large number of kids running around. Some familys looked as if they had been there some time and set up camp. Not a place to go if you wish to eat in good suroundings.
Food and staff were good, but wasted on this visit, which will be our last.
