“sunday lunch”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Looks a bit grim from the outside, but don't be put off the food is very good and the service was fine. Ten of us went for Sunday lunch and not one of us had a bad thing to say about the food. They also take the taste card which covers 6 people, but as my father in law and I both have cards we got 50% off the food bill. It was good value before the discount , outstanding after the discount. Overall a very good place to eat.

“Quality of cooking”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We booked for my MIL's 92nd birthday and, despite a minor mix-up re/ the reserved table (for which the pre-meal drinks were knocked off :-D) we were most impressed by the quality of the food; the lamb and the salmon we ordered were excellent in terms of taste/texture and the service was attentive without being obtrusive.We will make a point of coming here again, so highly recommended, and in a beautiful neck of the woods!

“Looks a bit gloomy on the outside but nice inside!”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

When we walked in we were pleased to see it looked inviting. The staff were very friendly and from all the things decorating the walls this is clearly a community spirited pub which is nice to see. The staff were very nice and the food was good.

“Fantastic food and service ”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to eat - a very varied menu with daily specials too. Very friendly service and a choice of eating in the bar or in the restaurant part. Well worth a visit if you're local.
Just to note service starts at 7pm and Food isn't served on Mondays.
