This was our first visit after its reopening and what a delight to find the food was still just as delicious! We were recommended one of the pies by a cheerful waiter and I’m glad we listened. I ordered the steak and ale, a light pastry full of chunky pieces of steak on a bed of mash with mushy pies... More

Told us to wait there and then returned with a business card saying "book next time yeah??!!" . I assumed this to be a drunken local and laughed him off and we... More

I dined here 2 days ago with a group of girl friends and we all enjoyed their fabulous Steak Night offer (2 8oz rump steaks with all the trimmings and a bottle of wine for £19.95). I could not fault the food or service at all. I am always very particular about how I like my steak cooked: if I... More

Had tea for two on a Thursday... Special burger menu night. Excellent menu and food to match. The recent refurb is lovely and the bar/eating area is very nicely done. The beer is well kept and thoroughly deserving of the cask marque award. My reason for four out of five is that whilst everything else was excellent the service was... More
