We've been for a few meals here recently, generally Sundays, there is a marked difference in the pub between Sunday lunch and Sunday evening, we are generally evening eaters but did venture in with family for lunch and found it to be very busy, with lots of families with young children and as a result we found it quite noisy. Sunday evenings are lovely and generally quieter.

The pub looks like it has been fairly recently refurbished, its quite modern inside, there is a wonderful huge open fire with sofas round it that is a lovely place to sit for a drink or before going to your table to eat.

We have found the staff very friendly, chatty and welcoming but not over attentive when you are eating. The food is very good, we have had Sunday roasts in an evening which have been every bit as good as the midday ones and the homemade pies are very good. A mention has to go to the chips, I'm not a huge chip fan but these are excellent BIG chunky chips that manage to be crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. I cant comment on deserts, usually too full…..

We have stopped here twice for Sunday lunch and both times the staff were very friendly and helpful finding us a table when they were busy before Xmas.
Both times the Sunday lunch was excellent value for money and good quality.

Went here on a recommendation and really enjoyed the meal. Having no preconceptions i found the whole evening spent there very relaxing. Nothing like a good steak and a warm fire place to make you very comfortable. I will be going there again.

Went to this restaurant on 29th December 2013, lovely little country pub tucked away in Wem. The food we ordered was lovely, the service was a little strange as when we entered we were told our table was just around the corner in the other half of the restaurant not having been to the place before we wandered around trying to find our table, then we sat there for about ten minutes waiting for someone to bring us a menu when one of the locals having a meal said you have to get a menu from the bar, maybe the bar attendant who told us to go to our table could of given us a heads up to this?? When we had chosen off the menu it then took another ten minutes to get a waiters attention to actually take the order, but when we got the food it made up for the poor ( shall we say) service, maybe just an off night. My overall rating would of been higher if the service had been better
