Thought we would give this place another try after hearing things were better, this will definitely be the last time we go here. Arrived at 4.30pm only one other table was occupied, spoke to a member of staff and was told you can sit over there, pointing in a direction. WE then waited 15 minutes for our drink and food...

First I must highlight the great service we had when we eat here. We were served at the table by excellent staff. Steak was a good slab of meat and cooked just right, My wife had chicken, just a little dry but mushroom source was good. As others have said this is pub food but good pub food and the... More

We were a party of five arriving at about 8pm on a Tuesday evening. On arrival we were asked the number of people and the staff member said nothing but walked off I am assuming to check for a table. She then came back to us and gestured to two small tables which needed wiping over and that she could... More

Average food, average staff, just average all round. Went here as a large family group for Mother's day lunch with 4 generations. Was OK but not my style of pub. Quite noisy with lots of children, some of whom were not kept in check. Food OK, but again just average

Stopped on our way back from Cornwall. The pub looked inviting and the menu was very varied with plenty of specials. The 2 4 1 offer was particularly attractive although if you were not able to benefit from using that (we has 3 in our party) £10 is expensive for a burger as is £11.20 for a Gammon! That said...

This is a nice pub with a large menu and a big specials board. The two for one is ok but doesn't make it mega cheap as some of the main meals are more expensive than in another restaurant of its type. We had the plaice which was nice but nothing special. The service was very good very polite and... More

Stopped by on way home from visiting a national trust property after noticing the 2 for 1 offer. Service was quick. Waitress was very friendly. Both my meal and my partners were very well cooked and was thoroughly enjoyed. Would recommend as typical pub grub. If you want fine dining this wouldn't be the one.

Good selection on the menu , as usual not great for vegetarians. Pleasant surroundings and staff. Drinks add considerably to the bill as usual.
