I went there today and tried to make an order. The lady was pleasant enough, but didn't want to take our order as she said 'we prefer' you to download our app', I don't download on my phone, so my son did. We struggled getting...the order up and asked if we could just place the order with her: 'No you need to down load the app". We walked out. What about people who don't have a phone? I now know why there was only a tiny fraction of the tables with customers...More

After a slight change in the menu ingredients and a little mix up with the order that was quickly resolved, the landlord was very apologetic and very accommodating 5 star service. Excellent and can't recommend enough.

Booked a table for two for drinks for 8pm. Tried to order another drink at 9.20pm. Was told they had stopped serving! No indication that 'last orders' was 9pm, one hour before closing. Ridiculous! Are they purposely trying to deter customers from going? They have...succeeded with us. Never again!More

Went for the final "Eat Out to Help Out". Apparently Half price = Half quality. We bought veggie lasagna (which was horrid, tart & acrid) which came with a bad undressed salad. Mac cheese which was clawing and bland. & a few starters. The loaded...garlic bread was fantastic but the seasoned fries were just fries and the loaded potato skins where dried out potato with some cheese sauce, not actual cheese poured on them. Honestly the whole thing was disgusting, They covered the social distancing well but the place was full of flies I was wearing shorts & I could feel them hitting my legs whilst i was trying to eat. Really not good.More

I've been here to eat quite a lot of times and everytime the foods always been lovely and service is great. However its probably because 50% was on that I didn't have the best service or meals. When we first came in the manager seemed...very stressed, (which is understandable as they seemed to be under pressure to get peoples food out) and told us we had just over an hour on our table when other people with less people had an hour and half and some had 2 hours. We all felt very rushed and as we had children with us this isn't very good as kids are very slow eaters. I just don't understand why you would give tables less time to fit more in when the staff already seemed stressed and very busy. The guy who brought the food over was lovely and although he was rushing round all over he made sure we had everything we needed. When the food came out 3 meals were only slightly warm which is good for kids but not for adults who like their food to come hot. Sweet potato fries were lovely. And the kids make your own sundae dessert looked great! I will definitely come back but when it isn't help to eat.More

We made a booking for Sunday family lunch on my trip from Australia, We booked a table 2pm. We arrived at 1:30pm and luckily our table was ready, We order our food and drink from the bar, I’m use to table service and think it...would be great if you offered table service, The food arrived, I ordered the roast beef lunch, so did some other on the table, I was disappointed to see everyone else had carrots on there Sunday lunch but I didn’t, carrots are my favourite, I asked the waitress if she could get me some and she did, I was happy. We also ordered lasagne when Leanna tock the first spoonful she nearly chocked on a big lump off fat, this put her off so sadly she didn’t eat any more but she did enjoy here garlic bread. We then ordered desserts, chocolate brownies, apple pie, a few ice cream Sundays, they where so good. Our waitress Jade was fantastic, she refunded us the money for the lasagna. She was as very welcoming and really looked after us. The service was better than the food. So 5 starts for JadeMore
