“Nice food...great service apart from one little let down!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Food amazing, homemade and good portion size. Desserts huge. People who brought out the food were lovely. As soon as we got there we were told we had to leave the table we picked by 6.30...fair enough but let us sit down first! Snooty blonde who took our payment at the reception part needs a brush up on customer service. Didn't say thank you as we paid and as my partner was saying thank you and goodbye she just turned to a colleague and started talking! Only minus point of an otherwise great first visit!

“Fantastic Food - Great value - Good Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

The wife and I went here on spec based on positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We did not pre book and we were warmly greeted by the staff even though they were very busy. the food was of a very high quality. ell presented and great sized portions. y wife had the battered Brie and the batter was light fluffy and obviously home mad. I went for the Bury black pudding and poached egg which was really tasty! We both went for the steak and salad and onion rings which was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Alas after eating the started and main course there was no room in the tum for anything else! The deserts did look good as other diners were tucking into them! Thank you for a lovely experience! The interior could do with a freshen up but it no way distracts you from the fine food

Absolutely amazing food. Really ale was wonderfully kept and we even had some of the chocolates which were yummy. Kids played in beer garden. Overall place was clean and staff were friendly. £80 for 4 adult dinners and 2 children including drinks. Amazing value.

“Tasty home cooked food - cooked exactly as we'd asked”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Hubby had flat iron lamb steak which he said was the nicest lamb steak he'd had, and being a butchers son, that's a real compliment. I had minted lamb and mushroom pie which was extremely tasty, eldest son had steak and ale pie which he devoured. Hubby had asked for chips to be done extra crispy, and they were. Would have no qualms about returning
