Took family to pub, ordered fish pie, fish and chips, steaks - good food all round. Table of 4 came to 75 quid including puds.

Would liked to have seen more local ciders. Was able to take dog in snug area - appreciated as not overly warm that night.

Had an evening meal here with family and the dog. Sat in the bar and enjoyed good service and a nice meal rounded out with a naughty dessert. All good.

Quality of food was poor and expensive. 2 scoops of ice cream for a child is £4.

The grumpy old man behind the bar was rude and not very welcoming. We ordered our dinner for 12 and then the grumpy old man behind the bar 'sighed' when we then asked for drinks. Honestly, does this man want our custom. I suggest you go to another pub where the owners are more deserving , polite and friendly.

Dear Katie H,
Thank you for your review - We try and look after all our customers of all sizes and I can only apologise if we came across rude! It is a shame that there is no appreciation for the 'grumpy old man' who went out of his way to get your party of 12 a table on one of the busiest nights in July! Regards
Jonathan

Our second visit for lunch at the California inn wasn't greated with the same wonderful weather as our previous one. That said we still managed to sit outside to enjoy our good, and the service was friendly and quick as there were very few other people there for lunch. The prices are reasonable, although not cheap. The seafood lunch platter was excellent, and my two teenage boys enjoyed their burgers (although the Brie was a controversial cheese choice!). Will be back again.

We went here for Sunday lunch and it was lovely, relaxing atmosphere with open fires and traditional interior, very polite staff and quick food service, our food came out quickly and was presented in a very modern way with the meat, roast potatoes and gravy on a large plate and veg nicely arranged in a side dish. The food was scrumptious and we ate every scrap!! Reasonably priced
Ample parking available.
