Found with pub on the internet and we were impressed by the food and service. The young lady who was waiting on tables was rushed off her feet but retained composure. If we had stayed in the locality another day we would have returned.

We drove over on a friend's recommendation and after checking online if it was open, supposedly it's open for dinner service.

Sadly it was not ,restaurant was fully closed up.

If you're going to run a business the most basic item on your agenda is ensuring all of your marketing channels have up to date opening times.

I hope they're open on our next visit , I've been informed the food is excellent.

Thank you for your feedback on how to run a business. In regards to our business hours listing, we have actually contacted trip advisor and Facebook many times to try and change them, emailed them and this has been going on since last year. Maybe you could suggest how we could correct this as part of our marketing? To give us a one star just for being closed is completely out of order in our opinion when we work our bums off and put our heart and soul into what we deliver when we are open. We Pride ourselves on good home cooked food with great service. Please take a second to think how a one star review for just being closed could affect a small family run business. We understand driving over and being closed has led to disappointment but we didn’t receive any messages to check before hand, all our reviews do suggest booking as we do get extremely busy so if you had come, maybe we wouldn’t of been able to accommodate you. Would we then have received a one star review for that as well?

Going forward, we can only keep trying to change the hours by sending more messages to update it.
