Staff behind bar in evenings and at weekends ignore you to chat- food has been late, my partner waited 45 minutes for meal. Food is average - peas were hard, little choice of vegetarian food.only great thing is the... More

Best meal I've had for a long time, quiet pub with nice staff. Husband said it's the best steak he's had in an extremely long time. Would def recommend the Yorkshire pudding & beef off the new menu.

The three pieces of gammon were two thirds fat, and were all of different thicknesses, yet it seemed they had all been cooked for the same amount of time,... More

Stayed at a local hotel and the restaurant was full so we set out trying to find something to eat and ended up here food was ok for the price very reasonable. Would have said probably better for families! Highly recommend take a piece of cake from the cake-away home! Delicious!

Try somewhere else,before you visit the hungry horse chain, to compare the quality. The food could have been much better with a little more effort

This local pub is only a 5 minute walk from my house. It has the usual Green King fare in it (beer wise) but does have a couple of guest ales on too. The food is reasonable and good and the staff are always helpful. We have been there many times and realy couldn't give a negative score.

Thank Sherwoods O
