We have been here numerous times for the Sunday carvery and recommend it to all our friends. It's a bit out of the way but well worth the trip. Do go if you can. You have a choice of three plate sizes so great if you are a small eater like me, or prefer larger portions like my OH. Three... More

This is a great place for food. The best fish pie I have ever had. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They have a warm welcome and make you feel relaxed and that you have been a friend for years. Great service. Worth the visit off the beaten track.

We had a carvery which was delicious and generous. The owners were very welcoming. It gets busy so worth booking.

Have been to this pub before, so called in with our family. As we were ordering drinks, we enquired about food. The bar lady was really unhelpful and frankly rude! The land lady appeared, and basically defended her too. Really poor customer services/relationship. We understand that we were a larger party, but she was extremely rude, and we felt very... More

Very welcoming.The food was good and the service was until we had finished our meal and decided we didn't want a pudding and then it seemed as if they couldn't wait to get rid of us although they weren't busy.

We visited a couple of Sunday's ago & had a nice meal. The beef was good but I was allowed only 1 yorkie pud!! The only other gripe was the skatty waitress. I don't know if she was hungover or what? Maybe it's just the youth of today?

An excellent carvery, well cooked meat, and the vegetables, what a good choice of decently cooked vegs, especially the sprouts which were excelant (not just shown the hot water, they were soft and very tasty), wish this restaurant was nearer to where we live, then we could visit every week! It was good to have the TV showing over 100... More
