Very good roast dinner at a reasonable price. Gets very busy so would recommend you book and as they only serve until 1.45pm on a Sunday.

I have been coming here for 4 years and I have never reviewed it before simply because I really don't want to review this excellent establishment with it's amazing food and great staff - for fear you come and I can't get a table! However, I really feel that I cannot give them they praise they deserve anymore! Once again... More

I've been to this pub and eaten on a number of occasions and the food is always top notch! The service is warm and friendly and the interior relaxed and great for meeting friends or eating with your other half on a romantic night out. This particular meal was a girl friends night out before Christmas and as always the... More

I have eaten at this public house and restaurant and many occasions. At the early times of my visits 2012/14, I would have ranked it as one of the best local restaurants in the area. Unfortunately when you have a very good Chef as far as food goes a lot rides on his ability to serve a good meal. The... More

Puddings were lovely & the beer was great. But what really made the evening were the staff - friendly & attentive without being overly so. Will definitely be... More

That may sound a little lame but whether dropping in to meet friends over drink or sampling menu with its wide range of choices, popping to the five dials is a bit like going home. Sarah and Paul are always on hand behind the bar or in the restaurant and always have a cheery greeting. The atmosphere is great and... More

We both had the burger and it was the worst burger we had has in a long while couldn't wait to leave, we... More

Booked for lunch and a table of 10. Arrived early but table was ready and greeted with warm smiles. The food was excellent and extremely good value. The service from start to finish was very good and I highly recommend it. Thanks
