Husband + I went along with 16 other friends, many years ago didn't quite meet our taste buds, but now very good, a good selection of meals, fish, meat, Veggies, the staff were very helpful couldn't do enough for us, also there is a car park joined, so not far to walk this winter weather.

Got to pub to be met with war welcoming smile from manager. Extremely busy which is a good sign, ( an empty restaurant is usually empty for a good reason). Ordered drinks, fantastic choice of cask ales, but also plenty of beers, layers, ciders to choose fro too. The meal was out of this world, plentiful, fresh home cooked produce,... More

Well we were here on Christmas day, yes it was very busy and yes it was a bit manic, yes we did wait ages for our food but the staff were very helpful and still managed to keep a smile on their faces, the manager didn't stay out of the way, I am sure a lot of people didn't bother... More

Went here on 16th December with 9 friends having pre-booked our meals. The service and meal were excellent. Food was served in reasonable time and was delicious. Staff friendly and efficient!

We decided to have Christmas lunch at a restaurant this year as a treat but wish we hadn't bothered as from start to finish our experience here was terrible. In fact, it more or less ruined Christmas Day. From the moment we arrived it was complete chaos. The bar was rammed and, despite the number of punters, there were just... More

I know that the service on one day doesn't necessarily reflect the service throughout the year, but what this place put their customers through on Christmas Day was absolutely disgusting and really needs to get out. There are a few other reviews on here that sum up the experience well and I will not go into all the things that... More

Visited here with the family today, a table of 10 of us! We had chosen the 3 course celebration menu as it had plenty of choice and was good value for money. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating to our needs, very friendly and we're happy to help with anything even when it began to get busy. Food was... More

No explanation or apology, then brother told no complimentary wine as promised on advertisement. Sister in Law - had to put cutlery on table, staff had no idea what had... More
