There are some lovely gardens surrounding this pub - from the front there's a large garden with lots of picnic tables then you go over a bridge to another garden area, again with lots of picnic tables and a very large childrens play area which is mostly fenced in but no gate to go into it. The water is fenced off, so completely safe for children.
They allow dogs in the garden too - we took ours and a couple of others were there too.
Hubby had the lamb shank - nice and large but not as good as others we've had, it came on top of mashed potato - but not enough for hubby's liking. There was a separate dish with 3 veg in which were peas, carrots and red cabbage - which had sultanas in it!
I had the chicken cacciatore - it needed a lot of salt, there's none on the tables, so you have to go in to the pub to find sauces etc - in the sauce were tomatoes, black and green little olives - which helped to give a lot of flavour - but it was swimming in oil and the chicken breast was very dried out. It came with saute potatoes with rosemary - which still had their skins on.
We weren't overly impressed so didn't bother with desserts.
Hubby had a fosters lager with his and I had a diet coke.
The prices seem very high for what you get - the lamb shank was £13.95 and the chicken was £10.95.
We won't be going back and I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
There is a large car park to the side of the hotel - which you can walk straight into the back garden area where the children's play area is.
There are no other type of tables apart from the picnic ones with benches attached and they are lots of them - so some parents had difficulty getting through with pushchairs to the childrens play area.
