Were told yes that's fine but food would be around 45 minutes wait. We ordered: 5 kids sausage and chips, 2 burger meals and a chicken burger. Not vast amounts... More

The food was very greasy, deep fat fried to plate along with grease! The waitress asked if everything aright when we sail no didn't respond? The wait was one hour and the environment cold. We were told it was because we hadn't booked , when there was only five other people in pub ?

The staff are always very welcoming and we are always made to feel at home at the tavern. Karen the landlady is a lovely person who always goes out of her way to make... More

First visit since new owners and there has been a big transformation. Both the service and food were great and when one of our party asked if she could have a plain chicken breast with no sauce and salad without dressing this was no trouble so we all got a great meal with food cooked perfectly portions were good too....

I live locally to this pub but very rarely visit, why I don't know as the Sunday lunch was exceptional good value. The staff were lovely too, nothing was too much bother. Decor was smart and clean and new landlady a lot more pleasant than last one. I highly recommend.
