“Not bad but!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Had a meal here today, a nice lunch of Cajun chicken with salad and others in our party had the salmon and swordfish. Which were all nice and generous portions, there's a lovely area for the children to play and the views in the garden are beautiful, but unfortunately it seems the barman was extremely arrogant when taking orders he was very rude for no apparent reason and the friends we were with are very laid back so the fact it was mentioned by them all shows how rude he was, the waitresses were lovely, someone get that barman some social skills!!!! Would recommend though!!

“Faultless Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

What a fab place to go on a sunny weekday for lunch. Great service from the two young waitresses and the young lady behind the bar. The food was excellent quality and good value for money. Highly recommended.

“really nice pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Lovely food - great surroundings.

I had asparagus wrapped in pancetta on a salad followed by chicken & salad (Yup on a diet) But everyone else had amazing things - superb fish & chips, puddings

Would be lovely to sit outside on a hot evening

“Mmmm, Cheesecake.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This really is a lovely place, good views with the light evenings too. Good space between tables. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is really good and reasonable value. To be honest if I want a good night out with guaranteed food, I go here. And as for the cheesecake... that's just out of this world even if it does make you drool thinking about it! ;o)

“Worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Staff friendly and polite. Went mid-week and had the fixed menu which was presented very nicely. Tasty and worth the money.
