Pop in here weekly with people from work for a beer or two and some food and we're never disappointed. The beer is well kept and if you're an ale person whilst the selection isn't massive all the beers are kept to a high standard. Food is fairly priced, delicious and plentiful in portion.

We pre booked for a meal. The food was good with very generous portions and plenty of choice. The staff were accommodating and polite. We had to queue at the bar to order food. Overall the pub appeared a little shabby with very dirty toilet doors. Unfortunately our table was next to the gents toilets and not in the main... More

Visited here on a Sunday lunch time with my wife, my brother and my two elderly parents. Misleading image from the outside but once inside its a very large typical British pub, 2 large roaring log fires, low ceilings and plenty of areas to sit. Very large menu and we all went for the Sunday lunch, good value especially if... More

Good overall experience, food hot and fresh would visit again and can recommend the Sunday Lunch. Slightly cold if you sit by the door but the real fires make up for this.

Went for Sunday Lunch on 29/01/17, and had our favourite table reserved for our family of six, including my six year old grandson. Plenty of car parking in their own car park, or free roadside parking. Not a pretty area, except for the very attractive (inside and out) olde world pub, plenty of beams and log fires with excellent service... More

Visited my local last evening for a drink. Whilst we were there we thought we would try the lemon sharing pud. Wow. Really lemony. Well done to Jeff the chef
