I had a pit burger which was delicious and my partner had a double bacon and cheese burger which was a good size. The fries were lovely and fresh too. The staff were friendly and attentive throughout our visit and... More

Been coming here for years but it could be a lot better. Lovely pub inside after new refurbishment, but the food is always just average. Went tonight for tea and as usual the food was not very hot, peas and grilled tomato was cold, and my 8oz Rump was unfortunately rather chewy and hard to cut. My husband however enjoyed... More

We had the gold package for 16 children and the food was good quality and plentiful. The package includes party bags, face painting and a character visit. My daughter and her... More

We left after being expected to trawl through the allergen sheets to find a suitable meal. In 2017 I expect better - we have come a long way in the last few years and this is a retrograde step. I am not a fussy eater - I am a Coeliac.
