Lovely willow trees and a large grassy park like setting are very welcoming - this pub is well suited for groups of all sizes. It was quite a challenge for our husbands to order our gin and tonics, so many varieties. We thought the staff...More

Booked a table for four of us for lunch on a Thursday. When we got there (12.30) the place was deserted. Doors were locked- not a soul around. Had to go and find somewhere else to eat. Not impressed.More

Unless you like hamburgers then avoid this place. Limited menu cooked by cooks not chefs and really not very good value. Why serve one of those "pies" in a ceramic pot with a bit of puff pastry on the top - for 16 quid? Meat...More

We arrived about 8.30pm not having booked. Restaurant seems to be split into three sections, bar service, waitress service and the conservatory (which we think was waitress service). It was relatively quiet. We were shown to a pleasant table in the conservatory. However it was...More

Thank you for visiting us. Ours is a market menu which is why sometimes we may run out of some lines at the end of the day. We do make most of our own condiments in our kitchen including our Tartare Sauce for our Haddock...More
