Reserved a table in the lounge, luckily, as it was full. We both had roasts, beef and pork. Meat was excellent and plates full! Puddings, treacle... More

Saturday lunch and we just wanted sandwiches for the adults and burgers for the children. The staff were friendly and helpful but the food was not great. The chips looked like they had seen better days and the Cajun chicken was poor. Burgers were enjoyed by the children and the salad was fresh. Coffee was great, freshly ground and great... More

What an appalling dump. Full of loudmouth proles. Landlady joined the loudmouth proles and joined in the general awful din . To call the landlord monosyllabic would be flattery. Pity because there's a really good campsite very nearby but if using campsite again would not go near. Avoid at all costs.
