“Pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

It was a lovely sunny day when we visited, so we sat outside. We didn't have long to wait for the food, which was a nice surprise as it was quite busy. This is part of the Vintage Inns chain, and the style of the food was familiar, but unlike some other pubs in the chain the vegetables were well cooked and the food very nice. Some aspects of the interior could do with a face lift and the waitress didn't bring salt & pepper,but all in all we had an enjoyable meal here.

“Pretty much Ok”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Reasonable choice of menu, food OK without being anything special, little bit pricey for what it was, decent enough drinks, service a bit sparse.

“Nice pub, rubbish food”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Great place to sit outside on a summers days but if I'd not ordered my chicken and bacon sandwich I couldn't have told you what was in it due to the huge amount of mayonaise. Other halfs steak sandwich was tough and the bread was dry, shame as it could be so much better!

“Up and down”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

This place is so hit and miss, it is currently going through a miss phase. Battered fish was oozing oil, in edible. Can't possibly be a proper chef just a microwave operator and very inexperienced deep fat fryer operative!
