We booked here on a recommendation and on entering the premises were greeted by the most sullen waitress we have ever encountered. The food was ok however the roast beef with all the trimmings was missing the vegetables because the chef forgot to send them out. We only realised this when another table got their roasts after we had eaten. A shrug of the shoulders with no apology from the waitress was all we got. The fennel coleslaw contained no fennel and the steak had no vegetables. We had to ask for more drinks each time and waited for ages to get coffee which when it arrived was disgusting. We sent it back and got a better cup however the bitter aftertaste from the first cup remained. Not one smile from the waitress for us or anyone while we were there - great service costs nothing nor does a smile. Won't be going back and if I was you I wouldn't bother going either.

Different BBQ food then your usual, lovely crispy pork belly. Lovely garden and sunshine. My only negative is that we couldn't see the chef cooking on the BBQ never less fantastic job.

Very nice pub/restaurant. The food was well prepared, but missed the last little touch for being very good. We got burgers, and we missed the lettuce and a few slices of tomatoes, which would have made all the difference for the burger meal, that eas otherwise well prepared.
