Called in here on a Friday night about eight pm, not having booked. Place was quite busy with around 4 tables unoccupied but all had 'Reserved' on them. Enquired at the bar if they had any tables for 2 people and saying we had not booked. Another couple also came in and were wanting a table as well. The staff said yes they could fit us in and showed us to a 'Reserved' table for two. The other couple were taken to a 'Reserved' table for 4! Menu's were presented, together with a Special's menu and drinks orders taken. Menu was quite extensive and reasonably priced. Fish pie was one of the dishes ordered and the waitress asked if the smaller fish pie would suit better which they serve at lunchtimes. This was accepted and when it arrived it was plenty. We were told it was about 1/2 the size of the evening portion! Overall good food and service although don't quite get why they put 'Reserved' on tables then let you sit there!

The food really was excellent and the staff were friendly. It has a great outdoor play area which makes it a great family place to eat.
We will definitely go again.

Menu needs updating and prices need reviewing. The Shilton was pretty much empty so service was quick. However I could over hear staffs personal conversations 'last night I did this...,' very unprofessional. Food was ok but nothing special.

Have now eaten here a few times - service is more like a restaurant rather than a bar meal. It's a bit pricey but as the saying goes you get what you pay for. Last visit was on Friday - had one of the specials - seafood tagialtelli - was a little disappointed as it said it was in a white wine sauce which it clearly wasn't - the waiter queried this with the chef who confirmed it should read in a mornay sauce and apologised - offered me a free dessert and boy it was delicious.
We eat out a lot and this pub will certainly remain on our radar for the foreseeable future as there is so much to try on the menu!
Would recommend that you give it a whirl - but ring to reserve a table first - it's very popular!
