We have become semi-frequent visitors to this pub, visiting approx. once a month for lunch. We usually go with family and always have good food and good service. Yesterday we went with friends in the evening and all four of us loved it. There was a little bit of delay being served when we arrived as there were a group of people booking into the hotel, the landlord was changing one of the barrels and there only appeared to be two people serving behind the bar. We weren't overly concerned by this as we weren't in a hurry we were just there to relax with friends.
It was great to see so many people there from guys watching the football, families with children and dogs, people of all ages. The place was nicely full without being crowded. We were treating some friends to a meal to repay them for a favour they had done for us but we weren't in a hurry to order food and sat chatting for probably about an hour before we ordered. This time service at the bar was prompt and friendly. I always worry when I take people somewhere on my recommendation. I worry that they won't like it and things will go horribly wrong but I needn't have done so on this occasion. All the food is cooked to order so doesn't instantly appear once ordered. The four of us all had different dishes and all four were served at the same time and were piping hot. The portions are very generous and although we had all seen desserts we felt sure we would also have none of us had room.
When we paid before we left the guy serving us apologised for any delays we might have experienced explaining that they had been 'mad busy' that night.
We will be going again.
