Would be nice if they had a wider selection of ales - one or two local craft ales to support the local small breweries would be good. Not sure if it's brewery-tied which may explain it. Last time I went all... More

Great value for money and affordable for a family. We had booked for a late sitting and yet were not made to feel as if we needed to rush our meal. Far from it the staff could not do enough to help. Sea Bass was great as was the steak. We have visited this pub and restaurant many many times... More

We have been threatening to visit this pub for quite a while and finally got around to Booking a table. There is a small Restuarant area behind the pub area. The menu was varied and plenty of options. I had the sea bass which was from the specials board. It was really tasty. It was a very friendly atmosphere. We... More

Lamb stew and the Monumental burger for mains.... yummy!! We had... More

Managed to book a table at the last minute on a Saturday evening. Pub caters for drinkers and family dining. Not the quickest service bt the food was of a decent standard.

We booked a table for a large group (9 adults plus kids!) but this didn't phase the staff who were friendly and accommodating from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and they didn't mind the children going outside to play between courses which helped us parents relax and enjoy our dinner too. The food was fantastic, I can... More
