After ordering the drinks we mentioned it was my son's 18th and we were here to celebrate. This did not mean a thing to the waitress, When we ordered... More

Having read your review I am sorry you felt the need to write this. I am intrigued by your review as I was unaware of any complaints of this nature, our waiting staff do check on the tables a little while after food is brought to the table in an effort to alleviate any problems that may arise. As to... More

Friendly staff good service ,nice atmosphere , let down by the main event, the food. Have to agree with previous punter ... food was greasy and deep fat fryer oil needs changing! Duck stir fry was not good. This place could be so much better just get the simple things right....

Situated out in the country at Willey, this is a pleasant pub serving good quality, well cooked meals. Traditional pub meals were to be found on the extensive main Menu or a Lunch-time one; but what I found really different was the choice of accompaniments offered with our meals. My wife had Hunter's Chicken; a good size portion offered with... More

My curry was very bland, my friends Fahitas too salty, so we swapped. The other friends Burrito was also too salty. She left most of it and was not charged for this. I left half of... More

Three of us arrived for lunch on a Thursday. The pub was busy- and no wonder! Our order was taken at the table (unusual for us!) by an efficient waitress. My 'not so better half' ordered a mixed grill, my dad gammon and pineapple and I ordered a brie baguette (listed as 'brie and bacon' but this was not a... More
