Having driven past this hotel/restaurant many times we decided to try it if they were still serving lunch. (2.30). Was told no problem. The hotel is beautiful, lots of small rooms each with coal fires, making them really cosy, music at the right level. The food was fantastic, I had the Ramblers sandwich, bit of an odd name, but a...

My wife and I called, recently ,at lunchtime, and we were very disappointed, with the clientele, the food, the lack of staff and the general ambience. When we went in, nobody greeted us and we were, literally, standing around wondering what to do next, even though we had phoned to make our booking Perhaps the pouring rain did not help... More

Plan to sample the Sunday carvery in the new year. I had called in with friends in October for a coffee and like other reviewers was very impressed by the service and the complimentary... More

I went here with my Hubby on a Tuesday lunchtime. There is easy free parking outside the Pub just off the main road. We were welcomed by the warmth of the log fire and the friendly smile of the young Barmaid. I ordered at the bar and paid by bank card. Our tea came with a FREE cupcake each! We... More

Went with my wife to the Sunday Carvery last weekend. Excellent quality and value overall which probably explains why it was so busy. The choice of vegetables was the greatest I've ever seen! The added bonus was a local harpist performing in the main eating area - it added a wonderful dimension to the ambience of the restaurant. Apparently she... More

Called in here as a family of three yesterday. The food was excellent as so was the service. I had chicken with a brandy and mushroom sauce. I have to say it's the best chicken in sauce I have ever had! The onion rings were huge, my husband had the Gammon and again it was huge. My grandson loved his... More
