“Back to how it used to be!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Visited with my family recently on a Saturday evening and we ordered a wide range of food and drink between us all. Absolutely fantastic food and service throughout the evening - the steak was cooked to absolute perfection. It was such a massive improvement from the mediocrity of the past few years (we live locally) and I'm pleased to say it was one of the best meals we've had for a long time. Needless to say we will be returning very soon! Great evening - Highly recommended.

Good food, weekly specials, sandwiches at lunchtime very good.
Friendly staff. Nice beer garden.
We usually book as we like to take the dog, they are allowed in the bar area.

Attractive building from the outside and a good size car park. Food was average but a welcome break and friendly service.

“Wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Four of us called in for lunch on the off chance .... unfortunately there was a large funeral party who had just arrived ....we thought about leaving but we found a table and were approached by the young lady waitress.....she treated us as though we were the only people in the room ...no hurry ... the food arrived on time and was lovely ...the young man behind the bar was also first class ...a good time was had by all.
