We didn't know it was the first night under new management and although the restaurant wasn't very busy,the place was buzzing. Have to say that the food was absolutely delicious! The Lamb Kofta was tasty, moist and whilst I would have like a bit more minted sauce, no complaints. The seafood platter was enough for two and delicious. Really could... More

We used the pub for a mid week dinner. We were very pleased. The food and service was excellent. This is the first time that had been to the pub for a couple of years. Since then new owners have taken it over. Without doubt we will be returning. The pub is fully recommended.

Took new neighbours here after a two year absence, but still no improvement despite the "good" reviews? The restaurant was empty although to be fair it was mid week. The starters were ok but the mains were very sparse. Fish cakes served cold and my plaice very small and no veg! The desserts were inedible - salted caramel torte and... More

We went for lunch today and had checked they were dog friendly, which there are. The staff were friendly and eager to help and the service was really quick. While we waited for the food we went into the garden which is walked off so the dog couldn't wander off too far. The kids loved the two parts of the... More

Great night last Friday, very welcoming and lovely meal. Met up with bothers and enjoyed a terrific meal, could have done with a few more chips but the fish made up for it. Along with a few fine ales....

Great pub whether you want a romantic dinner or as we did arrive with a walking group.We gave in our orders pre walk which meant that everything was ready shortly after our arrival. My burger was obviously home made and excellent. The sharing platters were generous and the owner manager could not have been more welcoming. Cozy fires and you... More

Went as a couple and the place was very busy. Food quality was much better than we thought it would be. Drink prices also not too bad. We both left very full and contented and recommended the place to several friends and family members.
