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.

Lovely lunch, nice selection of fresh veggies. Served piping hot. Lovely rhubarb crumble!!! Nothing to much trouble for the friendly staff. Slightly over priced ? But you get what you pay for ! Will definitely eat here again soon Thanks

We booked the Norton Tavern for a family meal for 10 after a surprise engagement. Karen (the landlady) was fantastic throughout the arrangements. The chef made a great job of decorating our last minute cake for us and the food was delicious. Karen was very attentive throughout the evening, making us feel welcome and cared for. Everyone said they would... More

We went yesterday as a family of 6 and the staff can't do enough for you. I don't know the manager/owners name but my boyfriend thinks he's hilarious and drove her mad but she took it all in good grace. She also makes a fuss of my nephew who has special needs and he loves that. The food was nice... More

Having attended a family funeral for most of the day a few of us were hungry. I called the Tavern at 6.45pm and asked if it would be possible to come across straight away. I thought it was a long shot due to the size of our group. However tables were rearranged and we all arrived at 7.15pm. Everyone enjoyed... More

Called in one lunch time would not do one of the starters as they said it was only for night time. Can't see what difference it would make as it was shown on the menu she gave us. The meal was good but a little pricey for what you got.
