“Good grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Nice to see the present landlord has turned the pub around. Nothing flash inside, not the cheapest but the food is spot-on, good home cooked food. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it :)

“wow what a meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

This meal was one of the nicest we have had anywhere.The steak was cooked to perfection.Both meals were delicious The portions are very large,so go hungry! We booked a table as the restaurant is getting very popular due to the standard of the food. We would definately recommend this pub.

“Good beer, good food but a bit expensive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

We visited here last weekend to sample some real ale, there was lots to choice from, while we where there we had some food, and once again lots to choice from, I had the piri piri chicken! Very nice but a bit to hot for me! The only down side would be the price of the food just a bit to expensive for a pub, but would go again and would recommend others to try it!

“Best restaurant within a 10 mile radius”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

Went here on 4th September, had a great meal and even stopped for the entertainment after. I have got to say I was more than impressed with this pub/restaurant. Everything from the beer to the service was exquisite. I would definitely recommend this place whether it be for a snack or a special occasion as they made us feel very much at home
