The staff were friendly despite making a minor mistake with my bill. The place has a lovely atmosphere and the food was adequate. The only things that let it down were the wait times on food, and the quality of the meat in my pie....More

Visited with my family for a meal. The food was ok but was over priced and of a very average standard. The service was poor too. Got the order wrong. Some dishes missing items and no apology. Not great and doubt I will visit again...More

So disappointed by our Christmas Day Lunch. The portions were small, however this was a blessing as the main course was really bad. The carrots, parsnips & potatoes were undercooked, practically raw. The gravy was thin & the Yorkshire Pudding was flat as a pancake...More

Only on the road outside the pub. You will always find a space, but be aware that you will have to pay before 6.30 pm

Hi Carol Although we are dog lovers, unfortunately we don't allow any furry friends in the bar area. We hope your trustee pooch will forgive you if you pay us a visit anyway. Kind regards, Catcher in the Rye
