“Style over Substance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

On the face of it this is a lovely little village pub. The interior is lovely and done to a high standard. They seem to only employ 'the beautiful people'. Service lets it down as one of our party had their starter forgotten about - in fact we had all finished by the time his arrived and he was not offered anything except an apology. The food is ok at best, my starter of camembert bites was overdone, and the main was alright - I chose vegetable lasagne, the staple of the unimaginative pub menu! This place is always busy and obviously people must like it more than I did. The food and service need working on and this place could be great, but it is cheap!

“Good honest food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

This pub is always busy! We have been here on many occasions and it is always buzzing whether it is a weekend or Monday evening (or even a weekday lunchtime). The menu offers something for everyone and whilst not ambitious it does provide all the regulars you would hope to see. A very popular choice here is the carvery with its huge portions! The staff are very friendly and attentive without being 'over the top'.

“Great pub food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Extremely busy - always a good sign - with a reasonably priced menu. Food was prepared well, and tasty. Lovely, friendly young staff. A top notch pub [not refined dining].

“Saturday night dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We arrived a bit early but were shown to our table straight away. The food was excellent considering that this is a local pub in the village of Rushton. We had a Camembert to share which simply was the best one I have had here in the UK. My husband ordered Tournedos Rossini which were done to perfection. I had a Filet Steak which was also done to perfection. The beef which was sourced locally was very good, full of flavour. My pepper sauce had a good kick to it. We really enjoyed the evening and if we are back in the area we certainly will come back for more.

“Excellent carvery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Went to Sun pm carvery and was impressed by its quality. Although we were eating at tail end of the day, food was always being replenished and remained hot without tasting warmed up.
