We have been a few times as a couple or with friends and family. The atmosphere has always been good and the reception and service excellent. They have a children/family section which is great for the kids, and less stress for the parents, not to mention grandparents!
Consistently good.

We have eaten several times and never had a bad meal .the staff are always friendly and go out of their way to make us welcome
Special mention to dan and Shelley and Stuart
Food is always consistent and plentiful
Drinks -- a bit on the pricy side but I would rather pay a little extra for the lovely surroundings and relaxed atmosphere !
Would not hesitate to recommend the penny farthing and the fabulous service and lovely food
Have tried the hungry horse opposition and they gave me food poisoning - after an investigation by EHO they begged for the opportunity to correct it and served me frozen mushrooms -- enough said!!

We live only a few miles away from this pub , so gave it a try as some friends had said it was very good value . Our experience was somewhat different , in as much as my lamb shoulder meal was
of a lamb that must have died from malnutrition , whilst my wifes trio of lamb chops could / should have been better . Overall , there are far better meals available locally

We visited this new-ish pub to eat for the first time this week. The decor is warm and welcoming with comfortable furnishings. The pleasant staff found us a table for five with no fuss, even though we hadn't booked and the place was busy. The menu contained the usual pub fare with a couple of slightly different options. The only specials board we could see was for different types of coffee.
The food was adequate and reasonable at two for one price.

This is a regular monthly meeting place for myself and 3 friends and we have now been about four times. Staff are extremely pleasant and service very quick. We normally meet about 6pm, so probably isn't at it's busiest. The pub is new on a new housing estate, so at present very clean and tidy. Very good choice of food, menu and board. I have always been very pleased with the food, although my friend says hers never seems that hot. Must be good as we keep going back!
