Had good reviews so came with family for dinner. Dinner was nice sat in conservatory. But the staff very unfriendly and basically took your plate away if you were finished or not like they just wanted you out the door quick as. Not as if it was busy there where a few empty tables. Food nice. Staff shocking!

Good food, lots of choice with daily specials. Staff all friendly and helpful. You can eat either in the conservatory or in the main hub of the pub, lots of character and open fire.
