Their was a strong taste of rabbit so I looked inside and saw what I believed to be a rabbits thigh . I have eaten enough rabbit... More

Popped in two have a look at the newly furnished pub we love, it looks stunning really fresh and clean, seems the price of the drinks have gone up sadly, not sure how this will go down with the local's taken away bar stools etc this pub has many regulars lets hope they can keep hold of them!!

Thank you for your feedback about the revamp of the pub. I'm glad you like the new look of the place, although we have taken away the bar stools from the main bar, we have re opened the old locals bar which is proving to be very popular with our regulars More

Great friendly customer service, best roast beef lunch I've had in years and my husband said the roast lamb was superb. Really lovely in there since their refurbishment and dogs are welcome in certain parts of the restaurant. Would recommend

First time visit to what I assume is a Fullers managed house.Quiet lunchtime and perpetually nobody behind the bar.Went for safety with the Faggots (£12.50) which arrived with an attractive spread of creamed potatoes,mushy peas and onion gravy.Only problem was that the insides of both faggots was like mince tartare,undercooked and raw.I ate what I could after having brought the...

On the spur of the moment on quiz night, I ordered a pea and ham soup. What a delight ,it was perfect. Attractively served, very hot, with croutons, finely sliced ham and fresh herb garnish on the top of perfect green pea soup .Also excellent 2 slices of granary bread, rustic style, with small pot of butter. Nicely served coffee... More

We visited this restaurant as we have many,many times last Sunday for a birthday meal with family and were extremely taken aback when we waited an hour for our food when the restaurant was surprisingly empty. When our food finally arrived it wasn't up to the usual standard and then we had to help ourselves to the desert menu.We would... More

I have been back in England for 3 days now, and have saved off having a beer until I could get a proper English pub pulled beer. Had a pint of Fullers that was flat and stale... couldn't finish it. Had an HSB, much better... it did help to wash the food down. Now the rest... having heard great things... More

My wife and I visited here in July. Food was fairly good good although not going to win any prizes yet. My wife ordered a Pimms before dinner which took an age to come. How long does it take to cut up some fruit? Service was good otherwise. The decor is dated so would benefit from a makeover. We were... More

I have lived in the area for years and had never been, I wish I had. Fell upon this pub when the coastal pubs were heaving! The staff were friendly and helpful, service was quick and the food was fantastic I had the ploughman's and a half pint of King prawns. Slightly pricey but worth it. Will visit again.
