I came here with my family for dinner this evening (Monday 8th of May 2017) for the first time. We had the Calvary and it was absolutely lovely. Fresh and tasty food at good prices. We had dessert which was also lovely. The food came in a reasonable time considering it was quite busy. The staff were so friendly and... More

Once a month they are holding a themed evening and we went last night to the New Zealand night. First time there for me and I was impressed. The food was excellent and lots of it, the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful. We have already booked for Egypt next month. 😊

Had Breakfast at this Pub the morning after attending a Wedding at Froyle Park. Everyone seemed to be having a good time and enjoying the Breakfast. This seemed like a very friendly place.

This is a great place to stop and enjoy the last bit of country hospitality before being sucked back into the city. Yummy all you an eat Sunday brunch, hit the spot.

Been a few times for dinner, and will certainly be going back. The curry on Friday was good, with a reasonable selection of dishes. The carvery was excellent value with exactly what you would expect from a wholesome country pub. Does not disappoint.

Went to this pub for lunch. It has a nice atmosphere and the staff are welcoming and friendly. The food was good. I had the bacon, brie and cranberry sandwich and my husband had bangers and mash - they were both tasty and presented nicely. There is a nice beer garden to the back as well, which we will definitely... More

The pub inside is tired looking, could do with a refurbishment, especially the toilets. Food for the evening was a choice from the menu or a carvery, didn't take a look at the menu, went straight for the roast. Of which I can say was lovely and was reasonably priced. We got there just before 6pm, not busy but when... More

Passed the pub many times but never ventured in until recently. Traditional country pub with wooden floors and tables. Food very good but a little expensive (Scotch egg starter £5) but very tasty. Will be coming again
