Great place, very good food. The barmaid who collected our plates from the table (44) was spectacular, she wouldn't down a pint though. Also I'm suspicious that Nell may not be real.

We had tea here when we stopped at their rooms and the place was busy but they still managed to seat us. Food is really good and good prices too. Will definitely eat here again. Staff was really good too. There was five of us and they managed to pull a extra table over to make room.

Went on a Saturday night, had the sword fish, really nice but spoiled by having tinned potatoes served with the meal, but the atmosphere was great, service was good, would go again but pick something without potatoes, i also think that the outside needs a bit of attention, getting a bit tired now

Visited for evening meal with the family. Large spacious pub/restaurant with modern clean facilities. Friendly bar staff, waiters and waitresses. Good choice of drinks and superb food. Even has a built in ice cream parlour. Will definitely visit again.

We were driving past and though it deserved a call in. Glad we did because the food here was lovely. I ordered the lamb burger which was really tasty and when my desert came it was large. Beautiful views on the outside and full of character inside

They are rude, don't make eye contact and are certainly not friendly. There was one blonde girl who brought our food that was lovely but everyone else looked like they hated being there. Pizza had a watery tomato base which made it a bit soggy and the mushroom wasn't cooked. Was just not worth £7.20. Chefs don't wear hats which... More
