Three family members visited for lunch today, as we often do, and it was very nice being treated like old friends. The drinks were quickly served and the food arrived in good time - not too fast for freshly cooked but not too slow either. As usual, our meals were delicious, whilst the latest menu is extensive to say the... More

Very good food, the service is very quick and the waitress is very kind always giving recommendations to costumers of what food is good and which is her opinion. The thing that got me was the pie I had : chicken gammon and pea pie like what but it was good. Me and my family really enjoyed it ! 👍

We was passing on our travels and decided to stop for dinner as it looked a nice pub to stop at. We got in with our young kids and found a table, once we had sat down a male member of staff came up to us and quite rudely said 'have you booked??' to which we wasn't even given a... More

I'm not one to hide in anonymity behind Trip Advisor, and would have complained at the time had it not been for the fact that my son and his wife had intended to treat us, and to do so would have embarrassed them. This restaurant deserves no such consideration, and the people who order and cook the food that is... More

First let me praise our waitress her service was excellent and very professional. Firstly, we ordered our drinks from our waitress but had to wait over ten minutes for the bar staff to bring them to the table (this is their system). Secondly, I personally ordered a Mix Grill (well done), leaving the egg and steak to eat last. I... More
