“Real cooking”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Went back after quite a break and were blown away with the quality of food and service. This pub really has a great chef who knows their ingredients. Excellent, fresh food served quickly with nice touches that made it feel extra special (crockery, service, games in the bar). A cote de boeuf to die for! We are making this our new haunt.

“"I'll be back"”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This place is out of town for me, but worth the trip. Good food, nice ambiance, friendly staff. The desserts are to die for!!!. Drinks pricey, but average for this area. Very popular would advise booking.

“Impressive good value pub”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I picked this pub to meet at as it was about halfway between all of us, no other reason! We were long overdue a catch up so really didn't mind where.
We were lucky in that it was a lovely sunny evening but we really were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, the friendly service and appearance of the pub despite its large size. Some big pubs seem a bit anonymous. It had a nice atmosphere and we even sat outside in the garden for a drink. It's on the A4 so there's some road noise but hardly surprising. Loads of tables in and out.
Interesting menu, lots to choose from and not overpriced. Butternut squash curry was popular between us and good salads which is nice for us ladies who don't always want pie and mash in a pub! We 'll be back for the next meet-up.
