Lovely Sunday lunch for the multi generation family. Friendly service, nice range of all meats plus a fish and veggie options. Lamb outstanding (for a Sunday roast) and all deserts delicious. Generous portions and good value for money. Children were very delighted by their adult portion of chocolate brownie for pudding :) thank you, we must visit more often!!!

This is a Pub you must visit at anytime but a Wednesday lunchtime is excellent with live music played by some excellent musicians. The establishment is well run with a very good choice of traditional and original ales. Food is top quality again with a varied choice on the menu served by very polite and help full staff. Give it... More

4 of us went here for a belated fathers day Sunday lunch, the food was delicious we all had different meats on the Sunday roasts and all thoroughly enjoyed it! The puddings were great too. Really fast and friendly service will definitely be returning!

This is the the second time we have been here in 2 weeks and the food is yummy. I had the cheese burger and it was so nice. The service is lovely and my chocolate Labrador loves it here. Thank you

We went here on Sunday for a family lunch to celebrate my father's 86th birthday. There were 11 of us and we had a really enjoyable time. The food was excellent and, in spite of the restaurant being very busy, we weren't kept waiting for too long. The waiting staff were very attentive and nothing seemed too much trouble. We... More

We went there last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Booked the table online - easy. Had a pint of the excellent 'Steaming Billy' while we ordered. The food was superb (i had the sirloin steak, cooked perfectly) and arrived promptly. Great service from the friendly waitress, Bronwyn. Will go back soon with the whole family.

Went to celebrate my father's 86th birthday with 11 family members. Great choice of food including good veggie option. Very reasonably priced and nothing was too much trouble for the efficient and friendly staff.

We had a very nice Sunday lunch - just found the pub by accident but was really nice. We both had the beef which was well cooked and lots of it. Served with a huge Yorkshire pudding and veg. Portion sizes were more than enough and was on a 2 or 3 course offer if desired - we didn't manage... More

We took our family their for a get together and enjoyed excellent service and great food. Our waitress who was called Bronwyn was incredibly welcoming and helpful. She had a warm friendly tone and made us feel immediately at home. We would recommend eating there if you want good food and friendly service.
