Visiting the area for a weeks break and having only arrived at around five pm,we had phoned a few places for something eat and found most fully booked, some all weekend and so initially considered ourselves lucky to find a table here.
We noticed straightaway there was a strange smell in the bar area and we couldn't decide whether it was damp clothing or stale urine.
There seemed to be an imbalance of staff with four vocal females behind the bar and only two serving food. Our food took around forty-five minutes to appear and was certainly nothing to write home about. The vegetables accompanying my chicken were burnt and the mushroom sauce, (£1.75 extra), was cold.
The food can best be described as being on a par with school dinners.
Admittedly the place was quite busy but I cannot imagine locals would form the bulk of clientele seeking food. You'd only eat here once!

Called in for quick lunch with my daughter and grandchildren. Had a lovely 'picky' meal from several starters and sides. Everything was yummy and well cooked and served. We are first timers who will definitely be back. Excellent prices too. A great place to eat.

Well, we had been recommended the Walkford on many occasions and thought it was about time we gave it a try I ordered the slow roasted and then chargrilled Belly Pork,wow,good choice.The meat was tasty, tender and succulent,.Sadly we had no room for pudding but could see from other tables they looked very good.We could not believe the value of the food,how do they do it?Finally the icing on this particular cake is the staff,they are so friendly and quick to help and also very cheerful not only with the customers but with one another.
