However decided to try restaurant upstairs which was only offering festive menu at set price of £28.50 there is a good selection of choices, but i was quite disappointed with the amount of food i.e i had seabass but only...

I used to visit here regularly a few years ago,then I went again a couple of weeks ago. Food is still of the same high quality and a good atmosphere with the pub quiz on. You can sit down for a meal upstairs or eat in the pub area for a more relaxed feel. Food was delicious and portions were... More

Called for mid week for quick bar meal. Pub downstairs was full so decided to go to restaraunt upstairs instead. The service was great, very attentive. Lovely (surprising) country pub surroundings. The food (all homemade) was fantastic. No starters or desserts needed either, as portions were more than generous. Good vegetarian options...but also lots of hearty meat dishes and steaks... More

Steak night is great value here and the food is fantastic. It gets busy and sometimes you feel like they've crammed a table too many in there - However, it never affects the quality of the food or service.

My wife and I visited this local pub for tea after getting back off holiday and not wanting to cook , to say I was suprised is an understatement . The restaurant is upstairs so not too good for disabled people and downstairs is just a normal bar with meals . The restaurant upstairs is comfy warm and very clean.The... More

Very impressed with the decor and food in this Gastropub. The Scotch Egg was worth it on its own. Will be back, next time not as the driver....
