No need to say more than this place serves great food and a good selection of ales to go with it. I prefer the lunch time menu, with it's more traditional fare than the evening one. It's excellent value for money and I've never had anything other than an excellent meal there. Note : Booking in advance is essential.

Lunch time visit with family, food excellent as always, waitress service excellent, not the cheapest of places especially with the drinks added to the bill, but a lovely afternoon all round for everyone, might try the evening specials in the bar 👍

We were recommended and pleased we did go. The place was packed on a Wednesday lunchtime, we are in our late 60's and I think we were the youngest there. Probably not a good venue if you are young. My wife's liver and bacon was very good as was my smoked haddock in cheese sauce with a poached egg on... More

We arrived as soon as it opened yet when my husband ordered the Ploughman's Board, he was told there was no pork pie to go with it as... More

This pub as always had a good reputation for food. This is the first time we have had Sunday lunch here and the standard lived up to its reputation. We had a excellent lunch of roast pork cooked with all the trimmings, for the price of around £10 cant be beaten. They also have a good range of real ale... More
