We've tried this newly refurbished pub twice now, in various combinations of 6 of us friends.
The refurbishments are great, now comfortable and attractive inside and out.

Great beers, decent wine.

The menu is fine though short on decent vegetarian options - the usual risotto etc.
I ordered a sirloin steak, medium, which came overdone and tough. peppercorn sauce a bit tasteless. others in group had gammon (very good), mixed grill (good), rump steak rare (good).
Chips a bit limp, needed crisping.

My main disappointment was lack of vegetables - the ubiquitous frozen peas just won't do!!

But lovely staff, nice atmosphere, trying very hard - has promise!!

Thank you for review and feed back we were hoping if you had the time would you be able to help us further by answering a couple of questions.
First of our sincere apologies that your Sirloin Steak was over cooked, Did the staff perform a table check and if they did did you inform the member of staff and if so did they offer to change to it?
Secondly did your steak come with Tomato's and Mushrooms?

We are working with John our Chef to increase the vegetarian options on the menu and hope to see extra options soon

Great food, great value for money. Quiet but it was a weekday and it is out of the way a bit. Staff very friendly. Great potion sizes.
Reasonable priced food and drink.

Lunchtime menu is also gresat value, baguettes with chips are gorgeous.
