We came for my birthday, All I can say is we will be coming back. The newly varnished tables are a joy to eat on from the way they were. The food was top quality, I had the gammon and my wife the pie. It was fabulous. Highly recommended

Never too busy when I go but I usually visit afternoons. Food is good not quite as good as it used to be, used to serve gorgeous thick cut chips but now chips are... More

There were maybe a dozen people in the restaurant when we arrived and it didnt get... More

Hello don g Thanks for taking the time to leave a review although we wish you had spoken to our staff on the evening in question first, that way we can rectify any issues as they occur. On this occasion we believe you were correct about the standard of our battered fish. Our chef has since changed supplier. Please accept... More

Celebrating my wife's Birthday yesterday along with my father-in-law, booked a table and arrived in good time. Got crammed into a corner right underneath a draughty window when there was a perfect table with a "Reserved" sign stuck on it that was not used all night. We have visited this pub/restaurant plenty of times before and it has always been... More

Hello kenhansonturf, We are extremely confused by your review. Having discussed this with the staff we believe you rang and booked a table for 3. On arrival you were shown to your reserved table - no 17 but you chose to sit at the table next to it by the window - no 18. We didn't mind and kept the... More

I'm really sorry to have to do this but any feedback to the pub may give them an opportunity to put a few things right. We visited here a few years back when it had gone through an overhaul; both me and my husband visited for a nice meal and were thoroughly impressed with both the décor and the meal.... More

The food is so great and lots to choose from. Been with family and dog many times. People respect the dog and so do staff. Lovely for a birthday meal or some time well spent with friends. Definite visits again !!
