Service very good, nice ambience but my main was most disappointing. Stale roast potatoes,frozen veg and roast lamb that was chewy and a raw blue colour. Starter and sweet were ok but not for me at the prices. Perhaps the proper chef has Sundays off!!

Have been here a few times over the years and latest visit was fully up to standard. Spacious well decorated dining room, friendly staff and always excellent food. Not cheap but worth it for the quality you get. We shall keep on returning from time to time.

Xmas meal and will be taking our Son and family prior to that. The whole experience was fantastic and we both felt... More

We arrived and was told that our table was ready in the bar area , not a problem but always have been in the main restaurant . Good choice on the menu , my other half had the... More

Food was amazing and staff friendly and professional. Had booked online and given a table in the bar area but were moved to the main restaurant when we asked. Note you can specify main restaurant in the comments section on your online booking. Definitely going back!

Excellent well prepared quality food with an excellent choice of wine and other drinks. We had paprika white bait to start followed by rolled lamb loin stuffed with mince lamb and herbs and served with a variety of vegetables and an excellent sauce. This was followed by a sweet of raspberry and intensive tasting chocolate tart. We chose the house... More

Drove out here for lunch and chose this venue based on a positive review in the "Good Pub Guide". Booking was easy online using "open table". Pub was well decorated throughout....modern but pub like at the same time. We had a table booked in the restaurant but chose to be in the bar as it was more homely (it was... More
