Stayed my at Center Parcs up the road and didn't fancy paying a gazillion quid for Easter Sunday lunch so happened on this lovely place. Very friendly and cosy and the Sunday east was to die for. We shared the lamb and it was as soft as butter and they threw in massive Yorkshire puds too. Great meal.

Excellent food. I had the Potted Haddock and Chiliburger. Both were very nice. The burger was very clever as the cheese was in the middle of the beef patty. Dessert was incredible as well Excellent service. Recommended.

We had a lovely meal here on Mothers Day. Nice atmosphere and good service. My only problem was that my side of the table seemed to be close to the next and on a service walk way. Every time some one walked past I was nudged.

I often have a glass of wine and food at this lovely, friendly pub. I always feel there is a great relaxing atmosphere in the bar (I much prefer the bar to the restaurant) but that's just a personal preference. Tonight we had a lovely evening, nice wine and tasty food. Never been let down yet.

With a good choice of beers available that are served in a an area that is littered with large comfortable chairs, makes it conductive with lounging whilst chatting away. The menu is small but well balance with some well thought out dishes that were tasty and well presented. The staff were friendly and the food is reasonably priced. We left... More
