We were on holiday, we tried to eat on a Saturday night, but there was a wait, so we came on Sunday night, and there was plenty of room. We both ordered chicken wrapped in bacon with mozzeralla cheese. There was new potatoes and veg. The chicken... More

Finally got to try the Steak and Kidney Pudding!!! And it was well and truly worth the wait. Number of times we've eaten and it's not been on menu/sold out or we've been having Sunday lunch. Absolutely gorgeous suet wasn't heavy meat and gravy lovely with usually mash and loads of veggies

My mum and I went here for lunch and I was beyond let down with the roast dinner, average size portion which would of been okay if I was able to finish the meal, unfortunately I had to leave the meat as it was like they cooked some pre packed sandwich turkey slices heated them up and dumped on a...

We did eat there first night but was put off at the end when we paid as was being charged for someone else's meal. We only had a meal and was charged £45. It was only thanks to me that I noticed as my husband didn't see it. It did spoil the lovely meal we both had. We hoped the... More

Six of us called in for drinks at day's end. One of the oldest pubs around and very pleasant indeed. Would recommend for drinks any time.
