Called in for a well earned pint after working in the area. This is a really nice pub with a great range of drinks. The bar staff were excellent and the prices were good for this area. We sat outside in the near garden. The furniture was really comfy and they had plenty of seats. I look forward to going... More

Evening welcome was lovely as was the service to a wonderfully tasty meal all round. And pleased to say this... More

We visited with friends having had a great time before and were slightly disappointed. The pepper steak pie, which had been EPIC on our previous visit, had thin gravy and very dry pastry; the vegetables were lovely, though. The lamb chops were tasty but could have done with more sauce and the stand out meal was the brisket in guinness... More

Wonderful service and tasty food. Reasonably priced too. Peppered steak our was delicious with tender meat. Desserts were just as enjoyable. Looking forward to our next visit.

Had an enjoyable evening, eating in the bar ( much cosier than the restaurant). Friendly service, decent and reasonable wine and a good menu. Starters were good especially the black pudding stack, and mains fine though the rib eye steak disappointingly tough. This is good pub food and priced accordingly. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

Have been 3 or 4 times in the past 6 months, every time we couldn't fault the food or the setting, the fish, steaks, fish cakes etc etc have all been gorgeous.

The food and staff are excellent here. It is a delight for my husband that he can have gluten free fish and chips.

Just called in with two hungry kids and have to say that this is one of the best pub meals I have had in a long time. Kids had the pizza, my wife had the pulled pork burger and I had the belly pork. We all sent back empty plates and were looking forward to desserts. Ice creams and apple... More

We stopped here on our way to a wedding. We were looking out for somewhere decent to eat on our journey so had done no advance research. This pub is nicely located on the A34 and just about the right distance for us to need a stop. We ordered three different drinks and three different meals, drinks were very refreshing... More
