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

A lovely country side public house that serves tasty bar meals at very reasonable prices. The specials board of two meals for £10.00 is terrific value and the quality of the meal is first class. The portion size is sufficient ( if not the same as the regular menu) and quite filling.

Nothing but nice things to say about this place. Good selection of real ales and the Sunday lunch was delish and reasonably priced. It had a nice atmosphere and the bar and serving staff were very polite and courteous. Would definitely return.

Came here on recommendation so was expecting a really good meal. The price is very reasonable - Sunday lunch £10.50 for 3 courses. Starter was OK - Main Course was not so good. Roast were frozen, meat was not proper slices off a joint and veg were overcooked and soggy. Trifle was OK, but OH said his pie was soggy.... More

Went here for lunch after visiting Mining Museum. Had roast dinner and fish and chips. Great pub grub with friendly staff and good service. Really couldn't fault it for price either. Only a few minutes from Museum and much better food and atmosphere. Lovely pub!

I am a regular visitor to this lovely pub the staff are lovely and welcoming The food is amazing fresh and tasty Be warned though if you sit in the conservatory you can get a bit of a sweat on! You can enjoy a game of pool or just take in the lovely view!
