Having visited here several times the past few years i am surprised at the many negative reviews.

I have been in the summer months when the garden is full of children playing on the equipment and the bouncing castle and the waiting staff are rushed off their feet serving lunches. I have also been in depths of winter when there are only one or two people in the bar.

Every time i am welcomed like an old friend by the regular bar staff and food is generally good. Like most places you can get the odd problem dish but the staff have also rectified this when i complain.

If your in the area and unsure id say give the place a go and let the place speak for itself. Plenty of good ales on l! But no Stella!!

Have eaten at this pub several times in the past year and have found it very good both for value and service. The pub has a range of good hand pulled ales with at least one being local, and the menu changes regularly including their Sunday menu. On a good day you can eat outside, but the inside has a more formal restaurant and casual bar. Dogs & children are welcome, but are not too much of a problem. The food ranges from full meals with starters & main courses to more relaxed dining options such as burgers or mexican style wraps. All the food we have tried has been good quality with sufficient vegetarian options, made freshly to order. The staff are friendly and helpful and the pub is clean.

A party of five made a last minute booking and where pleasantly surprised at this welcoming, friendly country pub. The meal was of an excellent quality, with the presentation second to none. The staff were friendly and helpful always with a smile on their face. We will certainly be returning.
