We had a meal on Saturday night, and the choice was ok, I chose the special of Paella, which was very tasty, but did have 4 unopened dead muscles in it. Wife enjoyed the Fish, which looked amazing! Kids enjoyed their meals too. Good portions, great drink selection too. I WOULD RECOMMEND this place for a great country pub grub.... More

I visited with my Wife, and parents in law for my birthday meal. The service from the start of the evening was excellent. We had a Gluten intolerant member of our party and the chef came out to explain what was and what wasn't suitable and when we couldn't decide on the wine, we were offered a tasting. Starters of...

We stayed here for 2 nights last weekend whilst attending our friends wedding up the road. We arrived much later than planned on the Friday night after a nightmare journey and as we had phoned to explain we would be late they very kindly kept the kitchen open for us so we could have a decent meal before bed.

We went for lunch and ended up only staying for one drink! I found a black dog hair floating in my pint glass, and there were also bits of food stuck to the inside of the glass. Disgusting!

If you had of raised this to a member of staff we would have of course poured you a new drink in a different... More

We went here on Saturday, the menu was limited and expensive. Food was rather bland. Unfortunately it is trying to be something it's not. We were there with our grandchildren one of which spilled a bit of her drink. I used the napkins on the table to clean it up put them on the end of the table. The waiter... More

Service was ok but felt let down by the food sadly the burger was in a bap with no excitement something you would get at a burger van and the chicken wrapped in Parma was dry with one slice of sundried tomato and one spinach leaf. Also both served with frozen chips that were half cooked. I'm happy to go... More

It's difficult to write a review when you know that your less than perfect score is based on the inaccuracy of your own expectations, particularly when, as a Tripadvisor regular, you often see others making the same mistake. However this is to stop someone else being unecessarily disappointed by inflated expectations. From reading the reviews I was expecting a high,... More
