What people are saying
Nice food
Sep 2020
We came here after previously playing aunt sally against the team from the pub and liked the vibe and the decor as well as how friendly they staff were and how good the food looked so we decided to try it. We called up and booked a table which was easy. After arriving we were shown to our table and it was one with a very nice view. We got drinks served quickly and all staff were friendly and helpful. We were located right next to the carvery and it smelt good and shortly after it was our turn to get up. A member of staff served you at the carvery due to COVID which is understandable but no screens so anyone can still cough or talk over the food when queueing. The staff who constantly changes who serves you had gloves on but none had hair nets with some staff whom had longer hair not really tied back did make us a little concerned. However the food was nice. The veg was hard but that’s how I like it my partner however wasn’t so keen and not a massive selection of veg only broccoli cauliflower cheese or root veg mash on offer but was all nice. The desserts were very well presented even if it wasn’t our first choice as it had sold out. We was then told less 2 hours after arriving we needed to move off our table as we had others waiting for our table. Maybe there was going to be an influx of customers as the place was half dead with lots of other tables already free in the restaurant but the lady who told us was polite as was all the staff said we could move to the bar area to finish our drinks but we kindly left instead and maybe when booking a table if it was for a 2 hour slot this could be relayed a bit better. Nice food lovely staff and really nice decor.

Lunchtime sandwich
Jan 2020 • Business
Visited this pub January 2020. Ordered from the sandwich menu- had prawns. Food was good although would have liked more filling, the actual prawns were few and far between. You do however get a healthy portion of chips on the side.
Service was prompt and the staff friendly. Would return for another lunch!

Nice carvery - great place for kids
Nov 2019 • Family
The pub has fairly recently changed hands and it is much improved. The Sunday carvery was good and reasonably priced. The pub is very child friendly and have a baby changing room and a good selection of toys.

Transformation

Total transformation from a couple of years or so ago. Menu better, food better,interior decor and layout better. Prices still good and is now great value for money.

Eating out
Sep 2019 • Couples
Visited this restaurant a few times my last visit I was not impressed but due to it having a lot of work done on it thought would give it another go. What a surprise the menu has completely changed it’s no longer expensive and has a much better choice. This was a lunch time visit so we both had a sandwich which was accompanied with chips and side salad the food was great the only negative thing I could say was the music wasn’t great very downbeat but definitely would come again for lunch. The garden looks amazing and will be great next summer a great improvement. The waitress who served us was very upbeat and friendly and full of smiles the staff overall were welcoming unlike our last visit I think this may be under new management because the previous staff didn’t speak great English. A great improvement

Perfect family pub! Amazing food!
Jul 2019 • Family
Fantastic meal, the carvery was to die for, staff friendly and efficient. Perfect restaurant if you have young children. They even now have a fenced off area for children with a bouncy castle! Will definitely be visiting again soon!
