Great, well priced food, with a varied menu. Landlord & landlady went out of their way to please, as did the staff at the time of our visit. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

Browsed on web for somewhere cheap and cheerful - and this is definately the place!! very small, so can be a wait, could be a problem for large parties. However, the staff are wonderful, very helpful, the barmaid really cheery. the food is plentiful, cheap and a really good selection. they allow dogs as well (obviously well behaved) which is good to know for our little rascals!! My daughter found it too noisy, but I loved it, fun atmosphere, everyone enjoying themselves. cant wait to go back.

The Major is a traditional English pub, unspoiled by any modern plastic refurbs, serving a traditional homemade Sunday roast. We (4 of us) just loved the place, and the service and the food were good too. The choice was roast beef and lamb, both excellent with lots of fresh vegetables and plenty of gravy served separately in a gravy boat. Although some of the vegetables (especially the beans) were a bit too al dente for me and the Yorkshire pudding a bit overdone (burnt round the edges) , we all enjoyed the meal which is a very good value for money. The portions were quite large, so no room for pudding unfortunately. The beer is good too.

I've been to The Major many times over the last few years and I simply can't fault it. The food is delicious and surprisingly varied for a little pub. The service is always perfect and everyone is very friendly. Prices are good and there's a pool table as a bonus. There's often football on too.
