We thought we would take our friends to the local pub as we hadn't eaten in there for a while as we would love to use it more often. The car park is always busy, which is great. The service was good however the food was really not up to standard. The burger was dry and the steak was't cooked... More

Visited on a Saturday night as part of a large party. Staff well organised and dealt efficiently with our party in a busy environment. Good quality pub restaurant menu with specials available on the night we were there. The atmosphere is warm and friendly but busy on a Saturday night so make sure you prebook.

My review is based on the lack of choice and information for Vegetarians provided by this restaurant and does not represent the service provided by staff nor the overall cleanliness or atmosphere of the establishment. I feel it's important for pubs and restaurants to consider and value their vegetarian customers equally to their traditional ones. After a recent visit for... More

A nicely presented village pub with a good atmosphere and good beer. We didn't eat there but food is available. Only downside is the lack of carpark space and the road outside can get a bit full and the verges get muddy.

Two of us went for lunch on a cold, wet Friday. Had never been before, but a friend recommended it. Very welcoming traditional style country pub with a real log fire. Menu has a good selection of food, from baguettes and jacket potatoes to full meals. We had the steak pie with a suet pastry and homemade chicken curry. The... More

There was 8 of us in a party. It was very nice to be in a traditional pub and we were made very welcome and they accommodated our delayed ordering very well.. The pub was busy with a nice atmosphere. It was a standard 'pub' choice menu, but everyone enjoyed their food and all 8 commented on their dish being... More
