“Great lunch”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Two of us had two for one pizzas at lunchtime. Friendly welcome and service. Very tasty pizzas. Everyone was very friendly, helpful and attentive. Nice old pub with a contemporary feel. We only had soft drinks, but the ale and lager offerings looked good. Highly recommended.

“Absolutely lovely!”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

We visited the pub yesterday for lunch, with our 1 year old daughter, the staff were very helpful and fetched a clean highchair and toys! Our food came quickly and was absolutely delicious! A lovely man in a white tshirt (between 40&50 years) dark hair and glasses, asked if our daughter would like an ice cream. When going to pay the bill, we realised the ice cream was on the house! Wonderful, memorable service! Highly reccomended x

Dropped in with my brother as he was in the area 2-4-1 half price ! Stilton burger very tasty, good size not dubbed down to meet the price. Cheery friendly staff for beer garden table service. Very enjoyable thanks.

“Decent steak, good atmosphere”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Went here about a week ago with some co workers. We should have made a reservation on a Thursday night, as it was packed. Got a table inside and we all had steak. Starters were good, the nachos are big enough to share. Drinks are decent and the service was really good. We later went outside for some drinks for a few hours and I think they all waited for us to leave, very nice. Do try this place.
