“Really enjoyable!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

En-route back home and drove past here so decided to pop in for lunch. What a good choice! We had excellent service - we were dealt with by 3 members of staff the time we were there and ALL of them were attentive, friendly and efficient! We only wanted something light - and as there is a light bites menu between 12 and 3 as well as the main menu this was fine. Plenty of choice as well. I chose the sweet chilli chicken ciabatta and my husband the cheese and onion pie - both off the lighter menu. The food arrived and was extremely tasty and filling. I succumbed and had the honeycomb cheesecake which was absolutely devine!! The surroundings were lovely, a large pub and plenty of tables but plenty of room between them which is a change! There is a garden room also which can be hired out for special occasions. All in all, a wonderful lunch, at a reasonable price - 2 mains, 1 dessert and 2 drinks for £22. I think anyone who complains like previous reviews about the burgers I suggest you go to McDonalds - I really do not think how anyone can complain about this place.

“Lovely Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Dropped by without a booking. We luckily were early and enjoyed a very nice...delicious in fact traditional roast, lots of fresh vegetables in separate dishes. Afterwards we took the wonderful honeycomb cheesecake...wow!

This is not our first visit and we certain,y will be returning. Well worth a try but maybe book ahead if you can to avoid being disappointed as it is such nice food.

“Sunday lunch”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Visited for Sunday lunch we all had the mixed roast which was very nice........little bit disappointed as they asked if we wanted our beef pink or well done, we all asked for pink, although nice it wasn't pink. Could have done with few more roast potatoes and a few more greens. Bar service was great and brought our orders promptly. Total cost just over £100 for 4 2 course meals and drinks. Would visit again.

Reviewed January 2, 2014

Had a lovely lunch here today, great choice of starters, mains and puds. The restaurant has a nice and relaxed atmosphere. Great place to meet up with family and friends. Thank you to the attentive and friendly staff and congratulations to the chef who never fails to tantalize the taste buds! ( try the honeycomb cheesecake, you won't be disappointed!)
