Enjoyed Christmas lunch with husband. Food and service was excellent and although there were quite a few large parties as a couple we were served with friendly happy staff. The menu had plenty of choice and as a regular visitor have never had a disappointing meal. Previously we had a bar meal which served just as good food and displayed... More

As a regular visitor to The Rag I am utterly baffled by the negative comments regarding the price of food at this excellent restaurant/country pub. My latest visit was for Sunday lunch with three friends. The menu, priced at £15.95 per head for three courses is outstanding value with a wide choice of dishes, all prepared and cooked to order...

The Rag was recommended to us by a friend, so we went alone the first time for Sunday lunch. The environment is quite traditional, with pine-based furniture and surpirisingly basic. However, the service was excellent and the food some of the best I've eaten in the area! We were so impressed we booked a table for the family when it... More
