Hi there and thanks for letting us know about how you enjoyed the food and value that we provide. When we had our major refurbishment, we spent a lot of time sourcing reclaimed and antique furniture befitting of a classic country pub. We eschew the mass market trend of leather dining chairs that are so prevalent these days, in favour of stunning rustic pieces. However, we are sorry if you found your chair a little uncomfortable but do try us again, we have many other chairs with upholstery that we are sure you would enjoy. Hope to see you again soon!

“It's in the extras”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

When I rode and pay for a meal I expect it to come with vegetables etc not to have to pay for them as extras.
It made an ordinary meal into an expensive one.
We won't be back.

Hi there and thank you for your review. It is hard for us to understand the meaning of "it's in the extras". Our Two Dine for £11.99 value menu has 13 different dishes on offer, and only two - Slow Yorkshire Braised Beef and Calves Liver have no vegetables or salad because they are expensive cuts and also can be eaten as a complete dish without veg. From our knowledge there is nowhere in England where you can find these two dishes (even adding £2.50 for vegetables) for a total price of £8.50. They are still c£4 less then any other venue who sell them, and our quality is up there with the very best. Thank you once again for your thoughts.
