Best restaurant around locally for Sunday lunch. Service always good and well run. Usually very consistent. Nice garden, plenty of parking.

Menu was good with some smaller portions available. The sausage and mash was marvellous as was the Beef and Rioja Pie, this was served with a mound of mash and loads of fresh vegs. Puddings... More

Typical pub lunch venue, with large pub garden. Extensive menu of choices in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The 'pies' are definitely worth a try! Definitely recommend this venue if you want a family lunch, or indeed, dinner.

When we are made aware of problems with Pepsi or lemonade we do replace the drinks with fresh drinks after testing the pumps, if we can't find anything wrong with the... More
