“Great Lunch Time Value”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Visited this place recently for the first time in many years. We were very impressed by the quality of the food & the value for money. There is a lunchtime offer of 2 meals for £9.95 which was amazing value. Pleasant surroundings. If I had a complaint it is that I found the guy behind the bar rather unfriendly, he seemed to have plenty of time for people he seemed to know but no time for others. This does not detract from the meal though.

“Don't bother unless your a local of the village”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Stopped off for Sunday lunch. Was left standing in the doorway ignored by 3 staff members. Approached the bar to enquire about a table the barmaid turned and walked away. Finally managed to grab a waitress only because 2 of them were doing each others hair. Asked if we could sit anywhere whilst eyeing up a lovely sunny window seat in an empty dining room, was escorted to a table on the darkest corner behind a pillar. Food was served relatively quickly but was extremely salty staff did not come back for drinks orders do didn't bother. Waited 20mins at the bar to pay as the barmaid was busy standing doing nothing at which point any chance of a tip had totally vanished. Disappointed as had taken a friend from outside Cumbria there who was visiting and it was awful. My advice go elsewhere!
