“Great Food”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Went there with some friends who were off on holiday the next day. The food and service was excellent, and as I didn;t have to pay the bill I was very happy. The only bad point was we had to wait for a table, people were sitting at tables who were not eatting, which caused a blockage in those wishing to eat.

“Sunday lunch”
Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Went here as a family ( seven of us ) and received excellent service even though it was quite busy.
Our server was very good, chatty and smiling she took time to even explain all the specials board.
Most went with the roasts and two of us went with the pork belly.
All meals were well cooked and very tasty.
Various desserts followed and a good cheese board all of which were yummy.
Mains, desserts various drinks and a bottle of wine £130 for seven good value we thought.
Great food, great service will return.
Best book as small car park and popular pub.

“Great value for great food!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Great service, great menu, great food, great value and "fish friday" is a must! Only reason this didn't get 5 stars is the small carpark!

“Very good lunch”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

I took a client here a couple of weeks ago for lunch, as it is very local to the office I thought I would give it a try, hoping that they would not disappoint, they did not. Very good menu choice for both snacks and meals, I opted for the soup of the day which came with a sandwich, my goodness that was certainly a meal not a snack, excellent. My client seemed to decide on one thing, then changed his mind which the waiter dealt with without a problem, the course turned up and he changed his mind again and wanted to add to his choice, still not a problem all dealt with a smile and courtesy. I would certainly recommend this pub for lunch from my own very pleasant experience.

“Great restaurant great service”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

Had a superb meal in a very busy restaurant on Friday evening. The service was outstanding, quick, and Timely. The food was excellent different from the normal run of the mill pub restaurants and plentiful. Try the prawn and crab salad as a starter it was Wonderful. Understandably the hillside in is now fully booked for December, suggest you get a reservation in for January. Very well done a very enjoyable evening
