My wife, daughter and I had lunch here a couple of days ago and were very warmly greeted by the staff. The place is very welcoming and warm; space is limited and booking may be advisable at peak times. There is a good menu with reasonable prices; if you are looking for good quality food, well prepared and presented, go... More

Lovely refurbished pub, shame the food let's it down really. It is very overpriced, and flavourless. My Eton mess didn't actually have any meringue in it!!! The waiting staff while lovely do not seem to be trained properly, the service was extremely poor. The landlady could also do with training in bar work and customer service in my opinion! I... More

We took took our daughter there for a birthday meal and found the meal, though simple,it was very good and enjoyable. only thing that spoilt it was that the publican seemed to take offence, in that I was chatting to the barmaid!

The food is sensational with a wide variety to suit everyone's taste. There is always a special fish dish on the menu which is pleasing. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. They have recently introduced a new larger/pilsner (Warsteiner) which is well worth a go. It's difficult to venture too far afield when there is so much quality on... More

The pub has been renovated and looks fantastic, and the staff are friendly. Unfortunately that's all I can say nice about it. The price of the food has gone up tremendously, and is overrated. All the food we had was unseasoned and flavourless, do not waste your money.
