Visited today because of all the Face Book raves and walked into a real traditional pub. However from the reviews I thought this cant be the same pub until a lovely bar member came through and said have you seen the restaurant area and the gardens! I explained we had come to visit due to the reviews and when introduced... More

The food is fresh and the service as at a 5 star hotel. Monday night is 2 for £15, £2.50 supplement for sirloin steak. Though this is an offer night the food quality or service is not diminished. The burgers are enormous and of a quality you would not better. Only tried Monday evening, like a bargain. Beautiful beer garden... More

Two of us had gammon and it was absolutely gorgeous; others had burgers and chicken. Everyone cleared their plates, the kids even tucked into the veg! The beer was... More

Very popular pub, had been before but not for a long time. Serves food until 8.30 on Saturdays, we went about 7pm and got the last table. Friendly staff, nice menu and some specials. Very big portions so glad we didn't have a starter. Freshly cooked and very tasty. Reasonable prices.

2 excellent meals for £15. We thought they would be small portions with being on offer. Fish and chips came on an oversized plate and it was gorgeous. Nice gardens and parking available for this lovely little pub

Having heard sooooo often that RL's burger night is great and at last with time to try. We weren't disappointed!! Presentation was excellent and derive if a little slow was great too! Would thoroughly recommend the burgers as a naughty but very nice treat!
