We arrived for a meal but did not stay due to the attitude of a member of staff. I asked what cider they did she told me then walked past and spoke to the person behind and gave her water for her dog . And was very abrupt

Good classic pub. Ales are a bit warm for modern tastes but foods good for expectations. Its a pub, not a resturant.

Meet friends for lunch. Wasn't sure what to expect as it was many years since I last visited. The place liked as if it had been recently been refurbished. My friend ordered the chicken liver pate & said it was nice. The battered mushrooms were ok. 3 of us had Sunday roast, 1 chicken & 2 chicken & roast beef.... More

After previous visits - I swore to myself that I would never return - but after hearing that new management had taken over...curiosity won! I am very glad to have to have given my local another chance and I urge all who have been disappointed by past experiences to give it another shot!!!! We now have a clean, warm environment,... More

expected to take full advantage of advertised all day sunday lunch when we arrived late afternoon. My husband requested beef... there was no beef, he requested pork.... there was no pork, he then requested chicken, keep up, there was no chicken!

Thanks for taking the time to review us, I am so sorry we had run out of sunday roasts on the evening you visited, we do try really hard to anticipate the level of business we are going to do, and on this occasion we got it wrong. More
