I will never set foot in this place again! Booked for Sunday lunch and must have waited over hour and a half! Not enough staff, I believe one chef, two waitresses and one manager/owner? Who seemed happy to continue taking bookings. The manager applying her lipstick at the bar decided to vanish leaving the remaining staff trying to cope! Eventually... More

Normally we eat at the Cross Keys for Sunday Lunch but due to them being fully booked we decided to try the forester. On arrival the place is simply fabulous, great decor and a great welcome, however this is where the good points end. We were a party of five including our in-laws in their 90's and on arrival we...

Quirky, eclectic decor (which I love!) and a cracking veggie roast lunch. My chap had the rump steak from the specials menu which he polished off - loving the red cabbage and parsnip rosti it was served with. I would have given this review 5 Stars but the chocolate and orange mousse had not a hint of orange. It was... More

We embarked on a journey from London tow Manchester. Along the route, was to visit the beautiful roman Bath. A cosy place. There was a live music from the bar,genteel entertainment and not over bearing (prob only a guitar ensemble). We took for ourselves a ensuite room. It was cosy, although the polka dots was a bit over powering. The... More

Visited last night for a friends birthday meal, I have to say I was really looking forward to trying the "Slow cooked Ribs with BBQ sauce" which I ordered. I was very disappointed with what arrived on my plate, Slow cooked I don't think so! The ribs were tough, hard and really fatty with no flavour, the BBQ sauce was... More

I usually stay at hotels so I was slightly apprehensive when my boyfriend booked to stay at a B&B for a weekend away. However, as soon as we arrived I was pleasantly surprised!! The landlady is really nice and makes you feel very welcome. The B&B is separate from the pub and you get your own set of keys to... More
