“Overpriced”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Have just had Easter Sunday meal there, food was ok,but not enough of it!! Only a small amount of vegetables and my son asked for a Yorkshire pudding instead of stuffing with his chicken,but we were charged an extra 95p for it!
Food all tasted ok,but nothing special. All had a roast and I had salmon..
But the price of beer is what stunned me....£4.40 for a bottle of MAGNERS, £3.85 for a pint of Abbott, £3.65 !!! Totally shocked me, so 2 drinks each for 5 of us came to a total of £35.....!! Puddings almost £4 each....overpriced for the portions
The full meal and drinks were worth about £70 definatly not £99.70 which is what we were charged!!
Wont bother going again!!

“steak night”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This pub restaurant is possibly one of the best in the area with a fantastic food selection served by some of the friendliest staff you could wish to meet.The wednesday steak night menu offers steaks of various types up a 32 ounce which i imagine would be excellent but our party limited ourselves to the normal size's and all came cooked to our individual requirements with a wonderful accompanyment of sauces and selection of vegetables.The meal was perfect and served very professionally,the bar staff are also good and serve a good selection of beers and wines which you can enjoy in nice surroundings of take your drinks to your table.All in all a very enjoyable evening which we shall undertake many more times in the future,

“Fanastic value and food on offers board, not so good dessert.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Myself, girlfriend and her family visited on a midday week evening for a family members birthday. Fortunatly we booked, this facility was completely packed from the moment we arrived till when we left. My advice no matter when visiting, book a table before hand. Despite it being so busy, the food was served quickly and there was little to no delay. Myself and most of the members of my party ordered from the early bird menu which was a starter and main for £9.95. The standard of food was outstanding for any price, let alone two courses for £9.95. The portions where what you expect for the price but the quality was very high. I cannot express enougth how good quality the two courses where, also ample choise from the menu. Something for everyone. The food was such good quality I decided to have a pudding, this is where my experience fell some what. The sticky toffee pudding I ordered was cold, after asking for it to be re-heated it came out cold again. Despite this, the overall visit was enjoyed and I would visit again in the near future. I highly recommend this establishment, remember to book.

“Mothers day meal”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We went for the 2 course mothers day meal today, starter and main course for £16.95 per head
and whilst the food was nice enough the portions were a little light and most of us were glad not to be too hungry. The worst thing was the toddlers screaming and banging cuttlery on the tables around us, it was not unlike being in a Mcdonalds during a kids birthday party and spoiled the whole experience, maybe they will install a ball pit.

“A fantastic steak”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We booked a cottage in this village but thought we would try the local one night as the food menu looked good. It wasnt the best seating inside in the evening but the food made up for that. We both orderd steak which came with black pepper sauce! We has misread and thought if came with the normal peppercorn sauce. When it came the sauce looked like tar and we reread the menu which said black pepper sauce, Well it realy did look like tar but it was also ''The Best'' Steak sauce we have ever had & the meat was cooked just right as asked. We have said we will visit again one sunny afternoon as we are only a hour away and the outside seating & garden looked lovely!
