Very disappointing Sunday lunch. The place was packed and maybe that's why our Sunday lunch was so poor. The kitchen couldn't cope. 3 Sunday lunches that were obviously pre-prepared and re-heated when ordered. The Yorkie puds were more like a flat-bread than a Yorkie pud...More

A very nice relaxing pub. Lovely traditional interior. Food is very good, good menu and nice well prepared and presented food. Not the most economical prices both bar and food. But for a nice occasion probably worth it.

There is a seating area but only small in front of the bar - but the staff are superb I am sure they will accommodate if more seats are required. I'm sure you will enjoy as it's always fabulous.
