Simple pub food lunch menu. Entered via car park entrance, meant walking past toilets, strong smell of antiseptic attempting to mask more undesirable odours! Welcome not particularly warm. Old fashioned interior. Food hot but basic, e.g. Pork and stuffing sandwich included masses of packet mix stuffing. Chips were hot, half of the onion rings over cooked. Roasts and fish looked...

Went in here while visiting friends. Staff really friendly and obviously knew my friends well. Had a gorgeous chocolate cake pud - served quickly and with the same smile. Prices reasonable. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Visited last night as a party of 8. We didn't book but we were given a friendly welcome and good service at the bar! We all ordered the mix grill which when it landed was massive!! All the meat was perfectly cooked and very very tasty. It's fair to say they got 8 clean plates back!!! Overall I can't complement... More

Fourteen of us went here for the evening Christmas menu meal, plenty of choice for everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed good food and good service, even though there was a power cut in the village as we were about to be served our starters. Candles and torches made it a memorable evening for everyone until the lights came back on. We... More

Had a nice meal, not too expensive but had to check bill as was overcharged. Staff friendly and helpful. Car Park needs lights.

Lunch time with friends. Pretty busy with a walking party, so glad we'd booked in advance. We all had £5 specials. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was delivered very quickly, and was genuinely tasty (clean plates at the end). The really impressive thing was how they managed to get so many different orders out so speedily. Pub was clean...

Went for an evening meal, wasn't to over crowded, received a nice welcome from the staff. You order your food at the bar with your drinks then sit and relax. The food didn't take very long to be cooked, we ordered three steaks all cooked differently and I had chicken. The steaks were cooked really well and were very tasty.... More
