This is an unpretentious country pub. We had the lunchtime menu and the food was quickly prepared hot and tasty. It was reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and efficient. A nice change from the chain pubs.

A favourite place for a superb good value lunch with a great beer from Caphouse Brewery. Always a good welcome and the views are stunning.

1st time we visited the food was delightful, although the decor is a little out of date. The second time, it was like we had walked into the twilight zone - the pub felt silent and we could hear regular patrons mocking us. We were treated like an inconvenience whilst ordering food and then the steak we ordered had been... More

First time we been there, average pup. We had 2 lunches for a tenner. 2 roasts, 1 beef and one pork. Both looked and tasted like reheats. There was plenty on the plates. Good selection of beers.

I would probably have gone 3.5 if that was an option so probably being a bit kind as my party all enjoyed it a lot more than I did. We were a big group on Christmas Eve, I thought service was probably a touch slow but this was fine, it wasn't excessive. I had a Brie wedge special to start... More

Despite the bar / restaurant / conservatory being extremely busy, the staff maintained a professional, courteous and extremely exceptional customer service. We noticed the landlady was pre-disposed, but her team rallied round and kept all the balls in the air, fantastic service, good food, friendly and approachable team. will definitely return.

Booked the far restaurant room for a private party. We preordered the food to make life easier. We were pleased to be allowed to decorate the room on the afternoon before the party. The food was excellent. The staff friendly and efficient. We had a brilliant time. Thank you.

Very quiet when we visited. Good selection of drinks available, reasonable cost. Great views from the conservatory and quite a cosy pub. Only criticism is the decor looks very busy with drawings, beer mats etc stuck everywhere, makes it look a little scruffy. Did feel a little watched by locals sat at the bar though which was slightly intimidating, however... More
