Came here for lunch sat 28th. I had tempura battered cod, triple cooked chips and mushy peas with homemade tartar sauce. It was THE best (don't tell The Husband I said that.. he's my own personal chef...) The cod was perfect, the batter was crispy...More

My first ever visit to the pub to sample the carvery. The only pro was the young lad carving the meat, he was very accommodation and cheerful.. now the cons.. poor selection of veg, rock hard brocolli, extremely hot plates, poor decor, felt a little...More

Having seen a recent drive regarding a new menu online I thought I'd pop back for the first time in quite a few years. Wish I hadn't. Still the same dive it always has been. A Boozer that plays at serving food. Wait times for...More

We won a pair of carvery tickets for the great lyde so decided to go and check it out. I'm usually the sort of person to find a good pub and stick with it. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the food was cooked...More

Friendly staff, good food. We arrived about 1.30, no Yorkshire pudding although some more came out after we had sat down, wasn't a drama as we had more than enough on our plates.
