We visited for lunch yesterday having not been there for a few years (since the previous landlords) and we had read favourable recent reviews. We were not disappointed. We received a pleasant welcome, the local ale was spot on and the Thatchers Haze was also good. We ordered food and the waiting time was reasonable given how busy the pub... More

Good job we booked as pub was full on our arrival. Friendly atmosphere and dogs welcome. Main courses included Cod,Moulles,Scallops,Trout,Swordfish and Spaghetti Bol for younger diners.All thoroughly enjoyed but Burger disappointing. Nice,reasonably priced wines and good pint. We had a bit of a wait but we did arrive at peak. Would recommend especially for fish lovers. After lunch we completed... More

We thought we would give this pub ago, as we hadn't visited for quite a few years. It was a Saturday night, and not very busy, and we hoped to eat quite quickly. We did in fact wait about 30 minutes for our food to arrive, and I've never had such a hot plate,as the one my food was presented... More

We have eaten here twice. Out of four meals two have been very good and two have been very average. So I guess it is best described as hit and miss. The salmon was overcooked. The sweet and sour was I bit tough and chewy and the sauce was not good but the ploughmans was excellent as was the prawn... More

Pros: We had the pork, which was well cooked and there was a good portion of meat on the plate. The crackling was good. The veg and roast potatoes on the plate was also nicely cooked and there was plenty of it. The additional veg was excellent (red cabbage and cauliflower in a cheese sauce). The gravy (on request) was... More

On both occasions I have eaten here I've sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed a pleasant meal with work colleagues. There is a fairly extensive menu which gives a heap of choices and the food has been plentiful and filling. As pub food hoes its above average but not somewhere I would drive to on a regular basis

I don't like to write negative reviews, but after a first visit for Sunday Dinner, we won't be going back. Poor service, poor food, and a lack of interest in how our meal was received means no further custom from us. Meal took 45 minutes to come, food was not as described (they'd run out of some veg, and roast... More

We went the one busy night when the Queen's birthday was being celebrated in the village. There had been a big day on the village green. Meals were just ok, staff were ok, but Limited menu. It was packed at the bar that night. There is only the Dog Inn and another pub at the other end of town which... More
