I have visited many times before and have usually had a good experience but this time was not the same. Booked online about four weeks in advance for a Mother's Day lunch thinking I had booked plenty of time ahead to get a decent comfortable table, instead were disappointed to find we were shown to a table near the entrance...

Two of us had roast beef and they were very nearly as good as a great home cooked one. Not often I find this in pub food with long service times. My daughter had Hunters Chicken and eat it all - which speaks for it's self. Service attentive despite being busy.

Nice menu and plenty of choices outside traditional Sunday Lunch roasts. Service poor table booked at 12.00 (at their request) main course never arrived until 13.40. 7 of us had varied selections from menu. Calamari excellent prawn and lobster cocktail over sauced. Sunday roast for adults were skimped not lot of difference from children's portion except size of yorkshire pudding... More

We arrived at lunchtime and the restaurant was fairly busy but not overpacked , we placed our order then proceeded to wait !! While we expected a wait to cook food from fresh and allowing for other tables to be served , this went on for nearly 45mins , when the food arrived I'd be surprised if all was freshly... More

We are very sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience with us, still thank you for your feedback. Delays in food service are not normally due the cooking time of the food but more the queue of food for other tables before it. Once again our apologies, do hope you will give us another try. More

Hadn't been here before, despite only living 30 minutes away. We were very impressed. The Sunday roast platter for 2 was excellent - a mixture of meat and lots of tasty veg. Lovely gravy. The desserts were amazing. A very rare find on the menu was a coconut milk sorbet which was delicious and importantly, dairy-free. There is almost never... More

Arrived for an early Friday evening meal to find the pub very quiet. Wasn't able to sit in the main body of the pub as every table had been reserved but the place was empty at 6pm. Menu was uninspired and felt expensive compared to other pubs in the local area. Decided to try the sharing platter at £15.75 so... More

We eat here regularly but last night 4/3 was a big disappointment! The waiters I thought were either miserable and unhelpful or rude. One of the main course's was so over cooked it was inedible and returned. We had to chase drinks with the wine not arriving for ages as they had run out of wine glasses! The place was... More
