4 of us went and everyone of us had a good meal, there were no complaints. The service was excellent and we didn't have to wait long for our food. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because I wanted the Lamb shank and was looking forward to it only to be told they had ran out. So,... More

Been here a few times when visiting family who live nearby. The pub/restaurant is comfortable and the staff are very friendly. I ordered a T bone steak which comes with the usual chips, tomato and a flat mushroom. The steak was cooked, as I asked, medium and had been well rested. I also ordered as an extra (costing 2 pounds)... More

Found when having a stroll and decided to stop for a rest and a beer. Nice little pub with friendly staff and decent ales. Good decor inside, comfy high backed chairs. Although not eating had s look at the menu and it appeared to have a good range of food Will definitely try again and maybe ample the menu

The steak was flavourless the steak was tough dry and chewy. For someone who eats rib eye every week I found it a disappointment. And it's not hard to... More

We went as a couple as we usually do but this time everything had changed. Don't know if it's been taken over or they just decided to break something just to fix it afterwards but it was no where near what it used to be like. Same young staff which is always good as they are brilliant for the place.... More

The friendly staff made us very welcome. Our room was an elegant king room with en suite toilet and shower. The shower was easy to use and the shower gel worked well on my long hair.
