“Not impressed”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Very disappointed with our visit here, I ordered a rose with lemonade which was flat, when my partner asked for another we were met with 'what do you want me to do about it?' bad service overall and I had to wait ten minutes for my flat drink. Food was average and in my opinion overpriced. Won't be going again!

“Warm & Cosy with excellent service”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Consider this as our local, food is always of a good standard and the atmosphere is warm and cosy. Sometimes difficult to get a table so always advisable to book in advance. The only small issue we had related to one of our party who ordered the tuna and king prawns. King Prawns was slight exaggeration given there were just two and they were very small, more like shrimps.

“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!
