First class food and service at sensible prices. Very pleased that we had booked a table as the restaurant was very busy. We will certainly visit again.

A good menu selection at reasonable prices in a traditional pub which concentrates on food. Wander just a little from the A17 and you will not be disappointed. I agree with previous comments the early bird menu in the evening is very good value

We have numerous times this year excellent choices each week on their early bird menu. Food always excellent as is the service. Great vegetarian selections which makes a change to most other restaurants. I would certainly recommend a visit great atmosphere and friendly staff well done.

If it wasn't for the A1 being closed we would not have been here today. Friendly welcome. Food came out quickly and was piping hot. Perfect crackling with the pork, beef perfectly pink. Tempted to have a dessert but didn't want to overdo it. Spotted a campsite down the road o may come back for the night to sample more!
