“Very disappointed”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Firstly our waitress was the only saving grace, generally attentive, polite and friendly. We enjoyed most of the food. But very disappointed with lack of local cider, poorly kept ale which I struggled to drink. Pictures in the toilets that are risqué, certainly won't want to take a young child in there, especially with the addition of toilet bleach left on window sill. Won't recommend to a friend.
