We stopped here for lunch after a long drive. I had the prawn salad and my husband had a burger with extra bacon. The salad was good and the burger was tasty and dry, i.e. Not dripping fat. The staff were friendly and attentive without being pushy. All in all a good meal.

Stopped off with my friend and my husband and chose from the small menu, fish and chips for £4.95. My word, you couldn't fault it, the fish was thick and succulent, lovely crispy batter, a little pot of tartare sauce and nicely cooked chips and peas. I don't think we could have managed a large portion as this certainly filled... More

Amazing! Really like the atmosphere of this pub. It's not noisy and you don't have to shout at your fellow diners to have a conversation! The tables are well spaced out so you don't feel that your sharing your conversation with other tables. The food is amazing. Had Sunday lunch here and it's the best I have had in a... More

We stopped here on the way home, somewhere we've driven past many times, but our first visit. I ordered baked salmon and my husband had a Texan burger (I think that was what it was called). It was really busy, but food came in about 20 minutes. My portion was very small, even though it was on the large meals... More

I was so impressed by this inn. It's huge inside and there is plenty of parking. They also offer smaller size meals, perfect if you want one of their puds, or you are elderly, or young. Or you can have normal size (big!) or big (mega) meals. There's specials too. The food was piping hot, and great quality. The staff... More
