Planned to meet a friend here for dinner but the sign said 'Dinner Thursday to Sunday.' Not impressed and surprised somewhere can afford to turn away custom three nights a week. Plus there were clearly some very rowdy guests in the accommodation blocks so hardly conducive to wanting to stop. Went somewhere else. Unlikely to be back.

This pub is local to me, I visited it last month for a drink and a meal, unfortunately the landlords were on holiday so there was no food being served, we only stayed for one drink as the barmaids attitude was not very welcoming at all. And this week my daughters father and his partner booked to stay there for...

For such a small menu the food was far from good. Ordered a 10oz sirloin steak, was informed it would be hard to cook it with no blood(!!!) as they were thick steaks, I suggested butterflying the steak and when it arrived I can only assume it was more like 6oz and rump steak and tough as old boots!!! Added...

We ordered as follows, lasagne, steak and kidney pudding, homemade beefburger and battered haddock. The food was piping hot and delicious. Not a scrap was left...

Was supposed to stay here back in August 2014 - looks like a nice pub and decent place to stay if you drive in from the front, so looked forward to our night. Was told we were in the bungalows at the back, walked through to find out the bungalows were more like sheds. There were 4 of us staying...

Been here a couple of times and the food has always been nice. Great place for a quick bite to eat with very friendly staff. When I visited I had lunch both times. This was steak the first time and apart from the chips being a little undercooked the meal was great value for money. The second meal was a...

My wife and I went there for a pub lunch yesterday and very nice it was too. The lunch-time menu is very limited but at £4.95 for a main course it was excellent value for the money. I had sausage and mash with onion gravy and veg while my wife had ham, egg and chips. Ordinary pub grub but well...
