Very busy place, so booked in advance as there was 10 of us. The service was slow the food wasn't great for the price, doubtful if I would go there again.

We had dinner here as part of a group of 8. This had been described to us as a better than normal gastro pub, and as a result I think we were expecting something special. The pub itself is obviously very popular and is nicely decorated and has a good feel about it. The menu is extensive - perhaps a... More

Lovely staff, great food and quick efficient service. Duck salad was gorgeous! Really pleasant and quaint inside. Will definitely come again when I'm in the area!

A really nice pub/restaurant. Very friendly staff and varied menu. The food was really nice and plentiful, sweet potatoe chips a must. Loved the mini desserts and hot drink. A restaurant for either a family meal or night out with hubby. Shame its so far from home we would go every week.

We went in, as we were passing. We are so glad that we did. The menu was extensive, and very varied. The food was delicious, and the staff were very friendly. We will certainly visit again soon.

Visited this restaurant with a group of friends. It's quite large, with a open plan layout and pleasant decor. The staff were friendly and the service good. The menu is sort of pub food with a twist, probably to the higher end of pub food pricing but food arrived hot, timely and everyone enjoyed their meals.

Been many times and always love it - feels like a real treat and the prices aren't as expensive as the atmosphere feels. Treated my parents to Sunday lunch and they were very impressed, me more so with the incredible Eton Mess! Sunday menu wasn't as comprehensive as it looks online so did feel limited as I didn't want a... More

Came last week for a meal with my other half and as usual it was lovely. We've eaten here a few times now and we are never disappointed. We arrived about 20 mins early for our table so we could sit outside and have a drink which was nice! For starters we had garlic bread and the squid, For our... More
