I went with 6 other ladies, the food was excellent, couldn't fault the service either, food was hot, plentiful and delicious. Would recommend this pub for an evening meal.

Went for Sunday dinner with my wife, was the sh1t! I then recommended it to my friends and took them the week after.... my chef must have been off work as the quality dropped from amazing to average. Word of wisdom, the peanut butter brownie is more like a cheese cake than a brownie! Would still recommend this place, the... More

If you want a large hunk of beef (in the form of a Sirloin rather than a hipster) with big side of fries and peas, then this place represents great value, good food and when the open fire is on, a cosy bar to enjoy your meal fireside. It is a quirky layout and can accommodate big groups in the... More

Went for lunch, the food is delicious BUT make sure you haven't had any breakfast and you certainly won't want any dinner if you go for lunch as the portion sizes are HUGE but like I said delicious. I had the scampi which was juicy, chips are homemade, hubby had gammon which was off the evening menu and came on... More

Always a pleasure to return to this lovely pub. This time my daughter wanted to treat us to lunch. It was a very difficult task, as usual, to work through a very good menu to decide what to eat. We should not have bothered to work through as using a pointer would always give something very nice. The staff here... More

Although we had stayed in the area five times before we had never eaten in this pub. Trip advisor reviews were good so we gave it a go. We went on a Tuesday evening and the place was pretty busy. By the time we had finished our starters we were almost full. Enormous portions and the same with the main... More
