It sure gets our vote! We had a few hours to kill on a rainy Sunday and this place came highly recommended! It's honestly not hard to see why. The service was fantastic, the layout was great and spacious, and the food... OMG! It took a couple of attempts to place an order as they were out of a couple of meats as there was a huge group who had arrived earlier in the day. But the meats there were, cooked to perfection! The sides and desserts were also magnificent! This is possibly the best roast my girlfriend and I have had in the UK!

We came with no pre-planning on New Years Day as a group of 4. What a nice surprise - the food is a better standard than and the prices are competitive with other chain places.
Although the bar area looked a bit tired, the staff were very well presented and professional.
Well worth a visit.

We went in for an evening meal, and found the staff less that enthusiastic, the food that we chose was distinctly average, though the atmosphere was quite good, we could imagine that an evening just for drinks good be good, but for a memorable meal it was very forgettable

We fell upon this pub on our way back from a walk along the river. They had a lovely log burner going which was very welcome as we were cold from our walk. The pub decor is quite basic but very charming, with walls covered in photographs of the many famous people who have visited there over the years. We decided to have something to eat and had the sharing platter, which was very nice and just enough to keep us going for the last bit of our walk.

We checked beforehand and were told they served breakfast from 10am. When we arrived, the welcome was not exactly warm. The pub was very cold and the plates were even colder, so the food soon got cold too. Shan't be going back!
