No complaints.

Friendly staff, good service, reasonable prices and free Wi-Fi.

I didn't eat so cannot comment on the food.

We visited mid-week. Arrived about 5.30pm, food service doesn't start until 6. Pub already very busy (August holiday time) with nearly every table reserved, we jumped on one of the last ones left. I did try to order at 5.55pm, but was told by the barmaid that the chefs panic if food orders come in earlier than 6 o clock! Had to queue for quite a while to place our order. Some other tables got their food quite quickly, but ours took well over half an hour to appear. To be fair, the place was completely full, so some delay was not exactly a surprise. Unfortunately, when it came it was ding food, so a bit of a disappointment really. I had the bean chilli, it was just about OK. My daughter had a burger, she said it was nice. And at least the food was not expensive by restaurant standards. Would I eat here again, or recommend it? Probably not, sorry.

Visited for family meal out, very disappointed. Food advertised as home made clearly was not when it arrived!!!! Pies were cheap frozen type which had been reheated in microwave and were hollow! Veg was a heap of frozen mixed veg and consisted mainly of peas. Chicken was so overcooked and re-heated the bones were black. Prices were extortionate for such awful no frills food. Toilets disgusting and filthy. Big shame as nice pub in nice place.

We went in on a Tuesday night which is quiz night with the intention of eating then taking part in the quiz. The food came out pretty quickly but the quality wasn't amazing. We ordered desserts just before 9pm as the quiz was set to start soon and the pub was packed with sitters and standers. Pudding was taking a long time to arrive and when questioned it was realised that they hadn't been put through to the kitchen. A very apologetic waiter informed us that we would receive out desserts for free but had just sold the last portion of the pudding one of us wanted so had to make another choice. Quiz was fun quite male orientated. Would return for the quiz, not sure whether we would go back for food.
