Most of the previous reviews of the pub and food are very good and some acclaim is probably deserved but it certainly could be improved. The Reception from the bar staff was very welcoming and a good selection of beer was available. i did not witness any problems with the locals as identified in a previous review and they seemed a friendly bunch with dogs in tow. We booked in for Sunday lunch and on the whole this was good pub food. The crab and coriander fishcakes lacked crab and seasoning, the beef looked and tasted like a pre-prepared slice but the rest of the meals that we were served were good honest pub food.
The staff were largely efficient in serving the meal although one of the male staff did beat his female colleagues in having a humour by-pass but the overall value of the occasion and meal was good. I would probably want to record a'good' rating but trip advisor takes you from average to very good and it didn't quite make the latter. If you are in the area, been for a walk and need some liquid and solid refreshment do not worry; If you want high quality food then you will need to drive further. I stress that I did not stay here.
