Called in on a Friday tea time after a walk and was very impressed with the whole experience! The bar staff were very friendly and the waitresses were very attentive to us and excellent service! One of us ordered a steak and another cod and chips and I got the lemon piri skewers and we all really enjoyed our trip.... More

Went in last week with my 2 boys and husband. Great deal on the kids meal and was more than enough food given for them! All together all 4 of us ate for under £20 which also included drink and dessert for the boys! Staff were very helpful and answered my boys many questions. Lovely clean pub. Will defo be... More

My friend and I went for lunch today. Ordered soup which was supposed to come with half a warm baguette and butter - arrived with 1slice of not so fresh bread! I wanted just a salad sandwich but they didn't do this so agreed to make one for me. Bread wasn't very fresh and no butter on the bread! When... More

The Crofters have new management as of a couple weeks ago with the arrival of Mitchell's and Butlers - a national chain but not one of the giants. If you download their Green Card app and register you'll start receiving a range of offers by email. We took up the "Two Steaks and a bottle of wine for £20 offer".... More

First of all our booking for 13 people was not ready, then only half our starters came out. Main course was terrible, nothing like it looked in the photos. Still waiting on on my starters!!

Visited with family members tonight and my meal came out with chips on it when I had ordered mash. Had to wait whilst everyone else tucked into their meals until my meal re-appeared. When it finally did appear the Mash was dry around the edges, the Gammon was like rubber, the egg was rock hard and the peas totally tasteless.... More

First I would like to mention the waitress service was good; that's where the positive review ends because food is not great. The landladies customer service skills was shocking and rude to say the least. I honestly can not believe she thinks it's acceptable to talk to paying guests in the manner she did. This was my first visit to... More

After not visiting this place for some time we decided at last minute to pop along for our evening meal. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing, very generous portions at a very reasonable price. We will definitely be returning.

Went in on a Friday evening for a meal with a couple of friends and the kids. It wasn't massively busy which I did have thoughts about. However the bar staff were friendly, good selection of drinks and plenty of room around the tables for the kids to play. Now onto the food. I had the triple stack burger and... More

Stopped for lunch on Saturday as I have on a few occasions with dogs and relatives. A pleasant area to the side of the bar is set aside for people with dogs so plenty room in the pub for those not so keen on our 4 legged friends. Staff very pleasant, food tasty, service good and a lovely Marlborough Sauvignon... More
