We decided to book at this pub purely because they accepted my tastcard for 4 people.
Just a basic pub on a busy A5 road, but easy to find although the sat nav takes you onto the A5 past the pub.
Central bar with a dining room towards the back.
The staff were pleasant & helpful at all times. Unfortunately two of the pump beers had run out and so we had to opted for an alternative.
We ordered food, starters took about 20 minutes. Three were fine but the prawn cocktail lacked a sauce which made it a little bland & dry. we did point this out at the time, not as a complaint but constructive criticism.
Our steaks followed shortly after and I must say "Cooked to perfection" every one was to each persons particular taste. I did feel for the price a few peas wouldn't have gone amiss.
There was little atmosphere as only two other tables were occupied.
I would personally say that the steaks were a little overpriced for a main road pub. But thanks to tastecard there was 50% taken off the bill which made it well worth it.
Mike the chef does cook a mean steak and we asked to see him to say thanks as I believe if you do get a good meal you should say so. Most people only make a point to complain but it should work both ways.
Would go again but only with tasecard as it makes the bill affordable and more realistic.
Nice people, clean surroundings, good service, hot and edible food.
