I booked 3 rooms at this pub for my family for one night.When I rang to make the booking I was told the rooms were fantastic.we drove nearly 200 miles to this establishment to find it in appalling condition ,it stank of damp there were live wires coming out of the walls ,there was a hole in the wall with rat droppings and on lifting the pillows up there was a large spiders nest and lots of spiders in the bed.we arrived late at night so unfortunately had no where else to stay but the car.this place was so bad we couldn't risk staying there .what is really bad is that the landlord can and still is advertised this as fantastic.i am now calling trading standards,its not worth the one star
Date of stay: August 2016

Walked in, no TV, dirty bedding, bathroom was black, holes in walls, black carpet, mouldy Ceeling and stank, apart from that, sound, how they have the nerve to charge people to stay here is beyond me. When I went downstairs to ask for my money back he didnt ask why, obviously they know why.

Visited with a friend after seeing so many great reviews but ended up thinking are we in the same place? Took a while for someone to take our order but arrived in fairly good time, however the 8 oz rump steak was incredibly chewy although chips were lovely. My friend ordered off the specials board and had to leave most of her pie as the lamb was so chewy. Puddings bit much better but passable, however what really let this establishment done was the terrible service - we orderd a bottle of wine and jug of water when we placed our order but it didn't arrive until we finished our meal - we just couldn't get hold of a member of staff! When a young man gave us our bill and asked us how it had been my friend started telling him and he unbelievably walked away!!!! Sorry guys you won't be seeing us again! Customers need to be listened to and not ignored - get it sorted!

A fantastic family friendly gastro pub. Delicious pizzas, gluten free options available, very helpful staff. Pizzas cooked in a cricket ball pizza oven. A great venue. Especially if you have a coeliac in your party as the staff are all very clued up on the gluten free options.
