Service friendly and quick, but let down by food. Please get the basics right of cooking a steak as requested. Our party had three steaks and none arrived cooked to standard requested, what's the point of asking us?
Secondly the place was cold, this might be a one off, as the staff said that they'd had their heating serviced that day, but then why did you only light the fire at 7.30? Management please note, when your guests sit eating with their coats on; its cold !

We had a warm welcome at the pub and the service was good. We both had the curry dish on the menu, the Korma and Madras, and it was very good. The sticky toffee pudding was light and delicious. It is a good place to drop in on a Monday and enjoy lunch.

Great country pub with a bus stop outside as well as a good sized car park.
The staff and Management are very friendly and cant do enough for you. The pub is very clean and tidy and the outside garden is great in the summer.
We ate a Sunday Roast which was just enough and of very good quality and the pub has a good, and well kept, selection of ales and wines.
Will certainly visit again when in the area.

We stopped for a quick drink before a wedding and were pleasantly surprised by the value. 5 drinks for £20!

I am totally confused as to why people rant and rave about this pub. The only reason that I can think of is that they have a capitive audience and that it is the only pub in the area. The pub has no atmosphere, the landlords are pushy and to overcome the language barriers when it comes to ordering is a major obstacle. If you want reasonable food, with no atmosphere, landlords that stare this is the place for you and you will enjoy it. My advice is jump in a taxi and go to any other pub within driving distance.
