We visited here on Sunday 17th July for the Garden Party. We had a brilliant time at this well organised event. We also dined here on the same evening as a party of 6. We ordered the burgers and they were delicious, the menu is pricey but it's for good quality grub. The bar has a very good selection of... More

It's important to me that my dogs are welcome in a place and they certainly were here. Our party of 5 adults had 3 dogs with us (well behaved of course). I ordered a pulled pork burger and whilst it was nice it wasn't quite what I was expecting. I thought I would be a beef burger with pulled pork... More

The food we ordered was tasty and hot. We went on race day and say down at 9pm for dinner. Was busy with drunk people however the lady who took our orders was excellent and moved us to a quiet table. I would go back as the food was good.

We arrived at this pub at half 9 and asked for food. No problem at all for them. The food was of the highest quality and really good value for money. The staff were both friendly and helpful, so much so we went back again the following night.

The atmosphere in the place is simply great.....a traditional pub with wood everywhere and candles on the tables and walls.....the bar is quite small, but the locals soon get out your way to be served. A lovely beer garden out the back and the food looked and smelled stunning (we didn't eat, but I certainly would if we ever went... More

We decided to eat here on a Thursday night after sitting in the evening sun outside the Kings Arms. The menu was much more enticing than the Kings Arms hence the swap. Good beer and staff however, the meal took ages to arrive - think they were a bit short staffed and there was lots of harassed looking people running... More

Haven't been for a while, Jonathan was front of house and was very helpful when we popped in to book a table. Damian and I shared baked camambare cheese and bread and it was plenty for 2 people. I had the rib eye steak for mains and Damian had an ample plate of ribs ( see pictures) both meals were... More

We ate here this evening. The food was good, except for the dessert which was a poorly made crumble but the service let the whole place down. The waiting staff are clearly untrained and even the simplest of requests proved difficult. We waited a very long time for various parts of the meal and didn't quite get what we ordered.... More

Me and my boyfriend went here a couple of days ago whilst on holiday in the Lakes and we're going back again tonight. We both had burgers and they were literally the best burgers we've ever had!! Lovely atmosphere, with polite staff and they also allow dogs in which is a major bonus for us as we had our Cockapoo... More
