First time at this lovely pub we were not disappointed. Food was tasty fresh and all home made staff are polite professional and pleasant. The little attention to detail like home made choccys with our coffees. Great selection of beers wines and all at a fair price. What a fabulous sunday afternoon we had , will be back very soon.

Turned up here last minute on a Monday having been refused entry to a pub in York because we had kids with us and were made to feel very welcome. They managed to seat all 10 of us - 6 adults 4 kids - and the food came promptly and the waiting staff were lovely. I had the Game pie... More

Lovely food and friendly staff. It's a while since we have been but the food and service is as good as ever, a comprehensive menus with a few specials throw in means there is something for everyone.

Also recommended wine as once again we couldn't decide - so many to choose from. Everything was perfect and so tasty. We ordered desserts too (unfortunately I was... More

We booked an early table for Sunday lunch. Everything was tepid including the wine. Roast beef dinner was one slab of admittedly not overcooked beef, with 2 bendy Yorkshires, uncrispy roast potatoes and a bowl of tasteless mixed up veg of assorted size and condition. Presentation was non existent. The onion soup was the highlight of the meal as it... More
