We dined here as a rather rowdy work group (roughly 25 of us) and imagine we could have been difficult to handle with lots of people forgetting what they had pre-ordered etc but the staff and service were just second to none. The food was...More

Had Sunday lunch with a friend here last weekend. We both had roast beef and agreed it was one of the best roasts we had had at a pub in a long time. To find perfectly cooked roast potatoes in a pub is a rarity...More

It's become a bit of a local for me and my dining companions of late, we're always well looked-after, it's above average pub fayre, commendably staffed and managed very well by the regular front-of-house hosts. It's a perfect place for a walk to or from...More

Our family had dinner at this lovely pub. With the old fireplace/cook hearth, you are transported back hundreds of years in comfortable chairs and fine dining options. Teens had yummy hamburgers, with lovely crisps, and the adults had tender, perfectly cooked steaks, and a delicious...More

Had a special family lunch here. The ambience and service were impeccable as usual but I left feeling slightly disappointed. The menu was quite limited and my roast beef turned out to be a small portion of fairly fatty beef. The prawn starter and my...More
