Nice relaxed surroundings, attentive staff, great menu and wine list...altogether an experience worth repeating....only drawback was lack of signage from the motorway which made us miss our stop on the bus...would not let that mar the overall experience though...very much enjoyed

Varied menu of good pub food, at a reasonable price. Cosy, welcoming atmosphere. Suitable for large or small groups, including family of all ages. Quick, efficient, friendly service. Easy online booking facility.

Totally mediocre lunch. Shop bought patè was disappointing and peas had a hard shell. Used to be much better!
