Visited on the 12th April, the day venues were finally allowed to open up even if was outdoors only for now. The British spring weather has really helped as it was warm enough to sit outside. Seated quickly and efficiently in line with all social...distancing restrictions. We both enjoyed the fish and chips, one fish was lovely the other had gone a little dry but was edible. Place was busy with people clearly enjoying being able to eat out or enjoy a drink again with friends.More

We recently visited for lunch. We instantly felt safe with hand sanitizers, clear markings and good communication from staff. The table was clean and we were well spaced. The Sunday lunch was lovely and good value for money. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Overall...a great place to visit.More

Jake looked after us today, he was attentive, helpful, courteous and professional, he, like all the staff are amazing and look after you very well. Food was excellent and we all enjoyed our meals and drinks. They also made our Little Dog welcome and supplied...him with a small meal at a very small charge along with a bowl of water, he enjoyed it too! We often visit on our own but this day we were with our parents and again they loved it. The Pub had good and clear COVID guidelines in place and our aged Parents felt really relaxed. We highly recommend it here.More

The Sunday Sharing Platter was amazing. Four different meats, potato and carrot / swede mash, roast potatoes, stuffing, red cabbage, mixed greens, yorkshire pudding and unlimited gravy! Somehow managed to have the mixed dessert too which was also superb. Staff were very friendly and attentive....We will be returning as soon as we can.More

We just managed to get a table on a Saturday night at short notice which was very good. We were shown straight to our table on arrival and our order was very quickly taken. We didn’t have to wait very long before the meals arrived...and the food was very good and hot. Portions were very generous and We just had enough room for dessert which was pleasing. Overall a great night with great food.More
