My husband and I with 2 friends had Sunday lunch here. It was delicious. Food was beautifully cooked and piping hot. Portions were very generous with plenty of meat. Would definitely recommend this pub and will be going back again.

Over the years we have had some fantastic food at the Piper and the elderly In Laws, in their eighties love the place. We took them along for their 57th Anniversary as they requested and booked a table for six. We ordered Starters of Olives and Warm Breads, another Warm Breads and a Prawn Cocktail. The bread must have been... More

We went to the piper for Sunday lunch, I ordered beef, my friend ordered pork. The meals arrived promptly but we were dis appointed with the quantity of veg, it looked more like a good portion for one rather than for two, however there was just enough so we said nothing. The meat was good, but the roast potatoes were... More

Delicious Roast Dinner and lovely service. Plenty of meat, which was really tender and homemade gravy. Not too busy either. Would recommend.

Huge helpings of food served quickly with very friendly staff. Inexpensive and good value - just a bit too much use of the deep fat frier imho.

Was a bit apprehensive because of recent reviews, change of ownership and temporary management. With those changes has come a more limited but still decent menu. Fear not. Thought our food was excellent. Steak and ale pie was as good as ever and the chips were great too. My wife's chicken fajitas were decent too. Drinks were fine (house wine... More

The menu said 'from the grill', the food we ordered was not from any grill I know of. We all opted for surf and turf skewers with fries, what we got was chicken direct from freezer with prawns again I believe to be frozen pushed on to skewers and served with chip s. I went for teriyaki sauce which was... More

We have been going here for years and have always really enjoyed it. We have noticed a slip in recent years however we're now pleased to see that this had been taken over and hopefully things are now moving forward again. We've been there twice since the new owners have been in and love the new menu.

Went here yesterday to find out that the pub has changed hands. Clearly the chef has left with the old owners. I ordered fish and chips and mushy peas. Some of the chips were rock hard and not cooked, the fish although large, was distinctly odd tasting and certainly not cod or haddock. My companion had steak and chips. She... More

After asking Google for nearby pubs, I saw this one pop up which I had never heard of and is literally only around the corner from my house! I would never have found it but so glad I did. My boyfriend and I ordered a bite to eat for lunch and oh my goodness, there was enough for 4 people!!... More

Thank you so much for you lovely review and just in your doorstep even better. I always find it funny when someone gives you a not so good review and then the next person gives you a 5 star. At least the 5 star reviews are outnumbering the not so good ones which is good news. We will shortly be... More
