“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Popped in whilst driving past with the aim of having a sandwich an drink. The wife chose the hot beef baguette which had the thickest slices of roast beef ever and I had the turkey, ham n leek pie . . .both really tasty and filling. Service was very friendly and welcoming.

“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We were staying with relatives and decided to eat out. My brother thought they didnt do carvery but when we got there they did. The beef was lovely and tender as was the turkey. Plenty of choice for the veg. It was reasonably priced and therefore would recommend eating here. Staff were very pleasent too. All in all a good sunday lunch. :-)

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Traditional menu of "pub favourites" plus a few extras, but then have additional specials each night (sometimes a steak night), plus (fairly standard) kids menu, so something for everyone. Very flexible, eg swapping veg, potatoes, splitting a dessert in two for the kids (and presenting each beautifully, rather than just providing two spoons and one dish). Friendly, helpful staff.

But watch out if you go in the ladies as the taps spray water over all of you, not just your hands!

“Sunday carvery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Was disappointed, we've passed this pub a few times & said that we would stop for food & drink. Although it looked nice the roast beef was rather tough & chewy, everything else was lovely though.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We ate here last year and had good food. Sadly, standards appear to have dropped and our food was okay, but not good enough for me to recommend a visit. 'Wine by the glass' now consists of a small bottle of mediocre wine. The curry sauce tasted good, but was so runny I could have drunk it through a straw and the soup so thick it was a puree. Chicken good, but gammon not. Disappointing.
