My friend and I often frequent the Oak for a catch up meal and have always enjoyed our experience. Last night however I was appalled by the lack of customer service we received. We ordered, a ribeye and a fillet steak for our main, When they arrived it was clear that the ribeye has been bashed (very thin) in an... More

This pub is set back on the main road, one of those places that you catch a glimpse of as you pass by. Luckily for us we had looked this one up with SAT NAV directions loaded we arrived without fuss to an unimposing 'old traditional English pub' with a surprise. The premises have a restaurant, a lounge and a... More

Found this pub by chance. Busy on a Monday Lunchtime. Excellent food and service from the lady who appeared to be serving drinks, taking orders from people for meals, making teas and coffees, bringing meals out to tables. Don't know if she was the owner of the business or an employee but she was definitely a credit to the business.... More

Went on a Friday night for dinner and found this quaint and friendly pub . Be wary - the main courses are huge. Everything was freshly cooked and delicious. I had the fillet steak which was well cooked and came with huge homemade onion rings. My husband had sea bass which came with prawns and shell on prawns - so... More

We have had quite a few meals at this "Little Gem of a Pub" the staff are most pleasant and welcoming. The food is served with a little bit of flare and the vegetables are always served separately so you can help yourself...instead of having all the food piled onto a plate...which sometimes can be a bit over facing. Lovely... More

Absolutely fabulous meal here today to celebrate my mum's birthday. We were a party of 5 adults and a toddler. All the staff were lovely with her and gave us a colouring book to entertain her (and a minty chocolate whilst the rest of us had our coffee) and went out of their way to engage with her. It's fab...
