Good food at a good price. Large dining areas and the garden is very nice to eat on a warm afternoon.

Thank Alan R

Selected this for sunday lunch from about 10 other choices of venues, based on recommendations heard here and there abouts. The room upstairs lacked any kind of atmosphere and we felt it was a bit - addon. No one in particular served us throughout, the staff looked like deer in headlights and flapping about, we didnt feel relaxed. We all got starters but no butter and so we waited and eventually asked.... to be told it was on the way up..we waited longer and someones starter was going cold, so we enquired again and was told it was at the back of the room. The roast dinner could have been so much better if the roast potatoes had not been so hard you had to saw through them and the yorkshire pud like cardboard. Cauliflower cheese was a great idea, but 2 runner beans and 3 small cubes of swede each between 4 people ? really? Saving grace was the friendly and discursive waitress at the end and fab desserts that were great value for money. I was embarrased I had chosen to take my guests there and wish I had stuck to somewhere I knew. But like I said, it generally gets good reviews there.

Went for a mid week meal. Staff friendly. Food was typical pub food. Burgers, steaks etc. Good size portions. Very poor vegetarian menu.

We booked a table for 11,
The food was very good quality (i am a cook so have some idea) and portion sizes were huge, Waited a little while for the food but as we were a large table that was expected.
Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for somewhere that serves proper pub food.
Only constructive criticism would be that once food was served we were pretty much left to it and a check back to make sure everything was ok would have been nice.
Apart from that=Fantastic
Thank you to the staff and kitchen.

....all these good reviews, we must of went the only night the chef had the night off as it was horrible! the burgers were 80% water and 20% meat, the chips were warm at best... straight from the freezer. alot of the "dishes" look good on the surface but lacked any sort of taste. bland is probably a better word. i still went on to have dessert (the wife opted out) as it surely could'nt all be this bad... 3 out of 3. im not sure how this place has so much good feed back?! im going to assume everyone that eats there has very low standards in taste and food. sorry but it was awful.
