We live within walking distance to this lovely pub, Nick the manager is always friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is great, but the place is let down by the inconsistency in the kitchen, most of the time the food is great, but then every so often things go badly wrong, particularly with overcooking the steaks! Its a shame, but... More

We called in for Sunday lunch without reservations. The restaurant was full but there was room in the bar. The staff were friendly and helpful. The choice of meals was excellent. The bar snacks are the best I have seen in a very long time. There was a good selection of ales and wines to choose from. We ordered the... More

Food was ok, chips under cooked but mostly appalled by the attitude of the person attached to the male voice in the kitchen that told one of the waiting staff to quote "tell her she can "swearing" [swear word used has been removed as requested] wait" whilst those of us in the restaurant got to witness it. This was followed... More

Such a nice looking pub with a combination of good locals, but why can't they offer effective management to compliment their higher end prices? Repeatedly, they appear unable to effectively staff the bar, or clear & clean tables. For a pub that boasts a hygiene rating, how can it be that dogs sit on owners laps at tables where food... More

My friend had the hog roast in a baguette and I the sausage with onions in a baguette with chips and salad, it was an unpretentious sandwich. It was not expensive as far as a sandwich goes, £17 for the two plus 2 cokes. The staff served in a pleasant and timely fashion, and I don't think you can ask... More
