On entering the pub we were met by a friendly member of staff who showed us to a free table and took our drinks order. The member of staff was lovely and friendly and helped make the dining experience great. We both ordered sandwiches and fries which arrived quickly, even though it was a Friday lunchtime and busy, and didn't... More

We have been here for lunch and dinner on numerous occasions. The food is tasty and of good quality. The room is cosy, especially when the fire is on. I would say the only disappointment is that when the pub is busy the service can be a bit slow but that hasn't put us off from coming back. Nice place... More

I use to come here every now and again as a treat but from the last couple of visits the quality and value of the food has clearly gone down hill. We popped in for a quick drink and a bite to eat one Saturday afternoon and ordered Calamari and Triple-cooked chips. The calamari came out in a small 4... More

Overall the food was very good and really good service. Having ordered scallops with prawns it was really disappointing that i only received 3 very slim slivers of scallop the main component of the starters was the prawns. It was nice but it should have been better described. If the starter had been better described the cost would have been... More

We have visited here before and never been disappointed. The food is fantastic as is the service. There is plenty of choice on the menu both food and drink. I had garlic Scollops and prawns to start which were perfectly cooked and enough bread to mop up the garlicky juices. My partner had crab and lobster cocktail which was full... More

Very nice decor with plenty of tables. Very nice warm atmosphere with the fire going on a cold night. We both chose the duck and were not disappointed. Very well cooked, nicely presented and a very good portion.The price was reasonable too. The young lady who served us was very pleasant too. Highly recommended restaurant.
