We had booked to dine at 1.30pm and arrived early. There was another party who had been waiting some time but the butcher hadn't delivered the steaks.
They eventually arrived but this did not seem to result in any cause for serving the clients.
When we were served the food was very nice but we had virtually finished our steaks before the mustard and horseradish arrived.
The outdoor area was very sad and needs serious updating and the general area would benefit from the attention of a gardener.
With so many competitors in the immediate area they will not feel at risk from this restaurant.

This pub is kind off the beaten track, it was very quiet when we went although we were early. Very good food especially the home made chips, the licencee was very welcoming and made you feel at home. The pub really could do with a make over definately smelt damp but you did get use to it.

We used to eat here 3 or 4 times a month before close down, been looking forward to revisiting under new management... Overall very average, however food was not as good as it used to be, not alot of choice and no child menu! Chilli con carne was very plain also had a very small amount of cheese on the burger ( 50p extra )... Lipstick on glass!!.. Other than that filling meal and friendly girl on bar very helpful, will possibly call again as live fairly local.

The pub has just opened from flood damage! To me it looks like they have just let it dry out, and not cleaned up or anything!

The table was sticky and the salt and pepper was covered in grime. The food was terrible, pasta not cooked enough. No flavour at all. They could not even get gammon and egg right. Our sides came out after we had finished the meal. They have not got a child's menu!

Not the best father's day meal I have had!
For pudding we went to Harrington Arms just up the road! Now their food looked nice, nice pub and will deff be going their soon for food!

Called in for a drink one afternoon as we were passing. Really nice atmosphere so decided to book for sunday lunch the next day.

Glad we booked as it was really busy, sunday lunch very popular.

Food was lovely, impossible to resist home made plum crumble! Please be aware that everything is cooked to order so it does take a little while, but good food is always worth a wait

Staff nice and friendly, great atmosphere, we will return.
