Plus points - large menu and a designated dining area.

Hubby had a roast beef sunday lunch, said it was very nice, although to me the vegetables looked quite overdone and soggy.

I choose a broccoli and 3 cheese pasta bake, served with garlic bread and salad. I asked for no onions on the salad, there was no onions but it came smothered in an oniony coleslaw which meant I couldn't eat it. I didn't call the waitress back as it wasn't really worth the bother for the few green leaves that were underneath. I did mention it at the end though so they could think about it for another time.

I was quite disappointed in the value of the pasta dish, there was barely any pasta and just a tiny bit of broccoli in an oily cheesey sauce. It tasted lovely though, but just so little. Garlic bread was none-descript and tasted little of garlic.

Would we go back? Perhaps, but would probably try somewhere else first.

We found this pub after a disappointing trip to High Head Sculpture Valley (not recommended!) and were so hungry by the time we got there that quite frankly we'd have stopped anywhere! Thankfully it looked friendly from the outside and was pleasant on the inside too. The restaurant area was very well looked after and the staff were warm and welcoming, particularly to our 3 year old. The choice on the menu was good and great value for money. The food was excellent. When I passed through to the toilet the bar area seemed to be frequented by a few 'unsavoury' locals, but that really didn't matter. I would definitely visit again if we were in the area.
