Excellent meal with friends last week. Good choice of menu, had the pick n mix faggots which are correctly priced at £10 as wholesome and plentiful, strongly recommend the fruit crumble and custard. Excellent ambience and choice of draught real ale and cider and spirits. Parking directly outside hotel limited although plenty nearby. Would definitely come back again.

Stayed for two nights at the hotel. Very welcoming staff. Hotel is in the centre of the town and close to all amenities. We were very pleased with our rooms. We ate in the bar on the first night. Home made Chilli was very good. Good selection of traditional beers available and over 100 brands of Gin. Very pleasant outside... More

If we could have chosen another place to have lunch we probably would have, but it was the only place around with table space at the time... Should have realised then. We sat down to have lunch, and it's was alright nothing special, the chairs were a little squeaky and the table too. The portions of the mains were of... More

We ate here one evening whilst staying at the hotel. To be honest, it wasn't our first choice because we couldn't get in to where we originally wanted to eat but it was a pleasant meal nevertheless. Portion sizes were good - I had the salmon and my partner chose the steak; his was very good but I prefer my... More

Popped in about 7pm on the off chance of grabbing an evening meal. Décor was really nice and the overall size of the pub was really roomy. You can choose to either eat in the bar area or in a more secluded dining section. Food was really good and priced well. Service was also quick friendly and efficient

Thank trevW35
