Called in about 7pm not having booked a table but found a table available despite it being fairly busy. Ordered food and drinks at the bar, we had about a 30 minute wait for the food which was fine as everything was freshly cooked. We had the fish pie from the specials board which was absolutely delicious and the light bite gammon which looked full size, couldn’t have eaten anymore anyway. The service was excellent, tables were cleared and cleaned as soon as they were vacated, we’ll definitely return.

We just called in to see if we could get a table, We were in luck.
We hadn't being in the pub/restaurant for many years.
We looked on the specials board and the menu. Place our order at the bar.
We had a wait for 30 minutes, the restaurant was busy and the chef's were busy.But I can say it was well worth wait, the food was well presented, hot and plenty.
The staff were very pleasant and a first class service.Thank you.
We will be going back soon and will be recommending it to our friends and family

I used to love this place but since my favourite couple left a few years ago it has never been the same, especially under the latest “management “ duo. We went for a family meal last Sunday and had to wait 45 minutes for it to be served. We all had Sunday lunch, the mash was cold and the lamb I had was very sparce. There are several other things I could moan about ranging from lazy and unprofessional staff to broken soap dispenser in the gents. (Been like it for 3 weeks). But what prompted me was what happened last night. It was 10.30, half an hour till closing, and one of the bar staff started putting all the empty chairs on the tables. There was only 5 of us in the place so that’s a lot of chairs. On questioning as to why they were doing it early the reply was to save time later. Come on Rupert sort things out please.
