We first used the pub when the previous landlord was in post and came back often - great food, service and atmosphere. Tried it since then a number of times but have now given up.
The staff are friendly (hence the score, otherwise it would be worse) but avoid the governor - he's not really interested in serving customers. The decor is grubby and hasn't been done since he took over. Food is variable. We're very local and would love a decent pub but have to travel.

The pub has two rooms. The front one is a small cosy bar with a roaring log fire and the rear a much larger room which feels more like a restaurant. The same food and/or drinks is served in both, just sit in the one which feels right for you. One of us has dairy, wheat and gluten allergies and has had no difficulty in finding food to eat. Whatever we have tried it has always been excellent.
