We visited here with my disabled Mother-In-Law and two young children recently. The staff were friendly and helpful, and looked after us well. The pub has a large garden with a play park that is a great asset - the children enjoyed the park, although they were more taken with just exploring the garden! This was a winter visit, but I can easily imagine it's a great place to be in the spring and summer.
The place is welcoming, the bar is fairly well stocked, and there's plenty of seating but it doesn't feel too cramped as it's a large building. It is a good, family friendly venue.
The food, however, was distinctly average. It could well just be personal preference, but none of us enjoyed my wife's sausage and mash, my enchiladas were entirely forgettable, and the only meal that was finished was my Mother-In-Law's lasagne (which, to be fair, she quite enjoyed).
If your priority is a nice place to take the family and you're not too demanding about the food, add a star to this review. We may well return in the summer - but possibly only for a snack instead of the full meal.
