“Great Pub Food”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

The food here is excellent for what it is (good pub grub) but the service is often slow. You get huge portions and their desserts are great, as a result of their sweet menu nights, but it's best to book when it's quiet or you may have to wait a while.

The landlord has a keen witty brain and will entertain you with every retort.
Mother in law and wife do the cooking and its fantastic.
We visited this pub on a recommendation and we were really pleased we listened

“Great food & jovial host”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Arrived on a Saturday night and found it very busy in the dining room but having found an unreserved table we ordered at the bar. Even though there was a large table of diners ahead of us our order arrived very promptly. The steak and ale pie was delicious. The service was top notch. Would happily recommend this for good pub food. A thank you from the host on the way out capped the caring service.

“Value for Money”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

A meet up with good friends for Bank Holiday Lunch, they fitted us in a table booking at last minute, but it was ok (right next to kitchen door but ok). We ordered a main course and it was good - could have been better vegetables with the pie. I ordered a Chilli and was very impressed, it was suitably hot but not overbearing. Service was friendly and they don't rush you off your table at all.
