We ate here on a Sunday and it was very busy, the tables are very close together which makes it difficult for anyone disabled. When i rang to book a table i explained that my Mother walked with a frame and was there a ramp, i was told by a very bubbly girl that yes there was at the back of the building and it would not be a problem. When we arrived it was not obvious to us how we were supposed to enter the pub through the back. A lovely young man from the bar took us through the cold room where the beer barrels are stored which was a bit of an assault course for poor old Mum but we did eventually arrive in the lovely olde worlde pub where we were greeted very warmly by friendly staff. They could not do enough to make us welcome and had reserved us a table near the log fire which would have been wonderful but it meant more steps which Mum could not manage especially as there were a lot of people around. We opted to sit in the top bar which was pretty chilly and very tight on space.
Between us we ordered Roast Beef, Lamb,, Pie and fishcakes. It is nice that on certain meals they do smaller portions inc the roasts. Yes you do have a fairly long wait but we expected that as they were so busy. It has a lovely atmosphere and so friendly and welcoming but the food was a disappointment. My Lamb was fatty and my Husband said the Beef was chewy, the vegetables were overcooked to an inch of there lives and the little bit of gravy was dried around the edge of the plate as though it had been sitting under heat for a while. We were hungry and ate what we could but were glad the puddings were filling and two of us opted for the crumble which was delicious. We would not eat there again but would most definitely go for a drink as it is a pub of great character,and lovely people running it.

Enjoyed lunch here. Cosy pub with fireplace. Reasonable selection of pub meals and good portion sizes. Friendly staff. Tables a little close together but only to be expected in an old style establishment. Good atmosphere with plently of regulars around the bar area.

I eat here almost every week, and the consistent quality of the food (including the varied special meals) is undeniable. The staff are always friendly and genuinely customer-focused. This is a great, olde-fashioned pub in the true English tradition. The only downside is that it's often packed and therefore you may experience a significant wait but it's worth it.
