Carvery at £8.99 to much for what you get. Puddings £4.95 for bowl of gruel worst apple crumble ever. Complained but no refund. Staff ok. Sad as this place coulb be so much more. Wont be going back.

We visited for Sunday lunch and the carvery was excellent. Definitely our favourite in the area. The staff were great and provided a bowl for the carvery for our 15 month old son free of charge. We have visited several times before and always had nice bar meals. Highly recommend the chicken Parmesan

We have been here before many times and always had a lovely meal with pleasant staff and surroundings. We arrived after a walk with the children a bit to early to eat, so had a quick drink first. Callum, the barman was extremely friendly and helpful. The menu was much reduced in comparison to previous visits. I believe the place... More

I'm sad to write this review as it was going so well until the bill issues occurred. Went for carvery on the evening and the setting was quiet and pleasant. Not been here for a few years but previously been pretty good and as expected. However, it took ages to get the bill. It seems that they had tried to... More

Visited with family for a Christmas get together which we only manage once a year. I personally found the food to be fine albeit not as hot as I prefer. The meal had been paid in full upfront in advance and was supposed to include coffee and mince pie at the end. The waitresses asked if anybody wanted coffee but... More

A fantastic pub where also the Beatles played in 1960. The people and the food was excellent. A great pub to visit

The place was empty which was a surprise on a Friday night. It looked very pretty with Halloween candles on the table. The food was nice and the sticky toffee pudding was the best I've ever had!! The main courses weren't as nice as the puddings. Service was very slow but the girls were very friendly.

However we needn't have worried, we had a nice meal and the staff were great. The roast potatoes had gone a bit hard in the servery but when this was mentioned they... More

The food was nice, not much choice of vegetables though nd it was abit bland flavour wise but generally it was decent. However, the service was slow, we had to ask where our drinks were half way through our meal, to be fair it was busy so we accepted the waitresses apology.. the only complaint that I can give is...
