Had a lovely roast dinner here with all the trimmings. Very friendly staff and good sized portions. Delicious ! One of the best Green King pubs I’ve visited. The toilets were clean too. We had a show round by the manager as we’re thinking of booking for an event that unfortunately could not go ahead due to Covid but it was made very simple and easy to book and decide on all our options! Hopefully we can re-book soon.

Lovely food and great value. Received great service from Tracey and Sarah and loads of choice on the menu. - could choose from either the usual menu and a lunch one. The mushroom and blue cheese wellington was delicious. We did not book in advance but were able to get a table. Will be back again soon!
