I have been here before and the service, beer and food has always been excellent. Until last night.... The beer - great. The waitresses great. The Christmas menu food offering - oh dear! Starter - a tiny portion of 2 slivers of honeydew melon with 3 small balls of water melon. A solitary small roast potato cut in half and... More

Portion sizes are becoming smaller every time we visit, Melon had 2 slices (maybe 1/4 inch thick). Chicken breast diminished in size. Had to ask for extra vegetables !!! It is a nice location but the food / portion control is letting it down. At approx. £22 not offering value for money Probably not the best pub and will look... More

The menu is extensive, the type where Gordon Ramsay would come in and tell them to simplify it, but somehow all the dishes come out well. I visited on a busy Friday night during Christmas party season and still the service was good. The staff seemed to be working very well as a team and, although we had a number... More

Walked in to be greeted with a very friendly warm welcome. Tables were set out nicely (not crammed in). Great selection of food. People in there reviews say it takes a long time to get service but i think it is better that you have a look and diside what you want as if you want to be served quicker... More

What a menu selection at this restaurant. Every options also provides a suggested wine to match every dish. I can't recall looking at a menu and being so tempted by the vegetarian options!! (Being a carnivore!). Superb service, great food. I want the chef to be my personal cook if I win the lottery! Lol

Visited on Saturday afternoon with my parents as they had never been before. Service was very efficient and friendly, didn't have to wait too long for food, bearing in mind it does tell you on the menu be patient as everything is cooked from fresh, and might I say you can tell food was lovely definitely recommend this place.
