This used to be a lovely village pub with good food. What have they done??? I must say that firstly the portions are small. I don't like big portions but come on... for the high prices being charged you'd expect more than a child's portion....More

Visited here for lunch recently and I must say for £14 for two meals it represented excellent value for money and good quality. There was some maintenance going on, which I thought was bang out of order with people eating. I appreciate that it must...More

I will never be coming back. Bickering staff behind the bar, a lengthy wait for sub standard food and a very dirty table. You get better quality in a wetherspoons. Save your money and give this place s miss.

Recently changed hands and all for the better, the new landlady has organised it well and got to grips with a good menu and good range of drinks. We pass often so will come back again, either mid-week or for Sunday lunch.
