The atmosphere here is great and in winter they've got a roaring fire which adds to the experience. The staff are great too, and happy to help out. We had fish & chips - really good, and a bottle of wine, coffee, and we were very pleased with all of it.
I recommend this place, highly.

Had the lunch deal and the food was really really average. Disappointing as this used to be a favourite for us for dinner. I don't know if it was because its part of a 5 pound lunch deal but... The first occasion I had coronation chicken that was completely tasteless followed by quite obviously a bought in dessert. Then the next time I had the brie and bacon and the bacon had a thick uncooked rind we didn't bother risking dessert. BUT the staff and the ambiance is fantastic!

Visited the pub with disabled relative and found access easy. Large tables made seating in all areas viable. Very varied menu with prices reasonable. Toilets very clean. Would not hesitate to visit again.

Nice looking place and probably good for a drink next to a log fire but the food is not good at all. Ordered the "char grilled steak burger" which is topped with "pancetta" and my wife had the chicken equivalent. The steak burger was clearly a cheap frozen variant and was quite frankly shocking. Mechanically recovered meat with small pieces of bone and cartlidge in almost every bite. Simply horible! The "pancetta" was horible fatty back bacon and not pancetta at all. Cant say any more than that.
