Excellent menu (including a fixed price menu) with some meals offered in two portion sizes. Food was delicious, well cooked and well presented. Staff were friendly and efficient. The pub was busy but we didn't have to wait long for anything. Will definitely being returning.

I have been here so many times, the staff try there best but they never have enough staff on duty. You could wait up to 10min just to get a drink. Food is ok apart from once they brought mine out and it was stone cold.

Don't worry we have plenty of space-too true! It was a bit full, but actually they coped well. Vintage Inns are variable and again to be fair this is at the top end.Some good starters prawns with scallops in garlic and some no-rubbery squid rings and then some porky stuff. Variable beer; but the Proper Job was....better than the other... More

First visit here and thoroughly enjoyed. The pub is very atmospheric and there is lots of outside seating if the weather is good. Food is above average, there is a set price lunch menu as well as a la carte and specials. Good service etc. Will go again!!

We had a meal here for my birthday, I had Roast Beef Duo which was amazing, my only complaint would be that there was quite a few items not available from the menu

I got served a very cloudy pint, which in all fairness was changed, but after a bit of a wait. I also ordered a Starter which unfortunately never arrived. The waitress simply said "It wasn't put through" I wasn't charged for it, but that's not the point. The rest of the food was good though, and happy smiley staff.

Relaxed Sunday lunch with wide choice of food,, well cooked, well presented, well served and reasonably priced. Very popular - great atmosphere - they need a bigger car park ! Great for all ages and one or two nice beers !

I often come here with large parties 8+ and they cope very well. My only negative is there are always several dishes that they have run out off no matter what time of day you go. Maybe better stock ordering is needed. On a plus side good food, great staff and pretty fast service. Always busy so worth booking.

Excellent service and good atmosphere. The parking can be difficult in that it get's busy. However, never had a problem with booking a table and the staff are always very courteous. A great place to eat.

We dined once but didn't like it too much. The table are too small and you can easily brush pass other customer . Foods are just ordinary but the price are expensive. The waiting staffs look at you as you're not good enough to be their customer. Attitudes are bad. Never again to eat there
