“Wrong pie!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Visited during a weekend away in the area, good menu and we fancied sitting outside, but the sun was going down and it was cool in the shaded area so we moved indoors. The football cup final was on and we didn't feel we could order until it had finished as everyone was engrossed in the game.

Two burgers with gourmet fries, a pasta and meatballs and chicken and ham pie. All looked lovely enough although the pie was spinach and mushroom as the supplier had sent the wrong type! Yuk!! Exchanged for a ploughman's without a fuss. All food was nice enough, a little pricey for what was really pub grub - not gourmet pub grub. Would have been nice to have received a goodwill refund for the wrong meal.

“Enjoyed our meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Four adults and one toddler all enjoyed an early evening meal. Good value and well presented. Cheerful friendly service. They had run out of one of the specials on offer we had ordered but were invited to choose an alternative which if more expensive we would not be charged the difference - very fair!
We did move tables as the football on television was too invasive - is it really necessary?

“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

Visited on the May bank holiday. There was a BBQ in the garden with sausage in a bun for £5. The three of us expected a good quality sausage in a nice roll. We got a cheap, soft, small white roll with two small sausages. They were very poor quality, no taste and obviously very cheap. £5 seemed a lot for a bun and sausage but as it was bank holiday we thought that was ok but we felt ripped off by the food we were given. The pub appeared to just be taking advantage of people out for the day. This was a great opportunity to link up with a local supplier and promote maybe sausages and burgers, not a chance to serve cheap, tasteless food.

“Pub grub done very well.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

I've been coming here for years and it's forever changing which is a good thing I guess. The menu always offers up something wonderful and tasty to get stuck into. The price reflects the quality so it's a small price to pay for something you can't get in a lot of pubs now. That being fantastic, exciting and sumptuous food. The staff are pleasant and the setting is picture perfect. Go there, tell all your friends and have a wonderful time. I did.
