The waiter said he would go and ask, when he returned he said another 4 minutes, so 10 mins later our food arrived so 45 mins from ordering.... More

Had a lovely few drinks with some friends, however we were still chatting after last orders, so rather than asking us to leave like most pubs would, the bar staff simply switched all the lights off so we couldn't see a thing! We got up immediately to leave and asked if they could switch the lights back on so we... More

I have eaten in this Pub several times, and it never disappoints. The staff are always kind and courteous, and make your visit a pleasure.....Nothing is too much trouble. We both had the Scampi with chips and peas. They arrived piping hot, with lovely crisp chips.....We followed with the Sticky Toffee pudding, mine with cream, and hers with ice-cream....There is...

I visited twice in one week. First visit was for a quiet drink and catch up with a friend. Had a G&T from the bar- regular type. Then I came on the Sunday and noticed the gin menu. Wish I had seen it before. Although I ordered from the gin menu and it said the drink came with mint- it... More

Came here for a Sunday lunch with friends. It was not particularly busy but everything took so long. The staff were slowly wandering doing something all the time but did not pay much attention to what was going on. We had to wait ages to order, the food took a long time to arrive and was just average in quality.... More

Popped in for a roast as we found ourselves free and hungry. Pleasing decor, clean and tidy with a good atmosphere. Chose to have a roast dinner but there are other choices for Sunday lunch. Food served quickly, tasty, hot and fresh. Overall reasonable value.

We visited for lunch with friends & sat outside in the garden which was quite busy but not crowded. Ordering at the bar was expected but it was quite crowded and there was not a lot of room for you to stand waiting to order and for the waitresses to get through with the drinks at the same time. The... More

Food, ambiance and service was perfect for reuniting with cousins. We chose roast dinner specials a couple of omelettes and tasty deserts. Not too fancy but just right.
