Popped in for late lunch yesterday. Natasha was very friendly and helpful - happy to swap leeks for mushy peas with the sausages and mash for my partner - and I had a delicious Lamb Tagine with rice and pitta. Portions were perfect size. Neither of us could quite finish, but didn't leave much! We have booked a Sunday lunch... More

Popped in Thursday night because I couldn't be bothered to cook. We hadn't realized it was steak night, so decided to indulge. Ordered a rib eye and fillet, which were both cooked as requested and the quality of meat was amazing. We ordered a couple of sides too, but there was so much food, we couldn't manage anything else. A... More

I felt welcomed as soon as I arrived, which as a lone woman in a pub is not a given. The menu is short, which I see as a good thing as it means the food is fresh and cooked to order. The food was delicious. Inventive, well cooked and presented, and the perfect quantity. I shall definitely return.

We visited for Sunday lunch with our son and daughter-in-law and were looking forward to it. The pub is a really old building with a lovely atmosphere and we were shown to our table by a very pleasant waitress. We had the bread and olives and mozzarella sticks to share for the starter course and they were fine. We then... More

Found this pub by chance and thought - "let's give it a go!" Sunday lunch excellent. Warm welcoming staff. Lovely coal fire burning, atmosphere really relaxed. Very impressed and will certainly visit again. P S - we'll have the pudding as well next time!!!

This is our local pub within easy walking distance. The décor is great, staff are friendly and very accommodating especially when you haven't booked! The food delicious and freshly prepared. The menu frequently changes making the best of seasonal food which gives you the opportunity to try new dishes.

Booked after reading reviews. Staff lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. Food ok, £20 for a steak that was very average. Hand cut chips were just frozen.

We called in here on a Saturday night and were surprised and delighted by the live music. The atmosphere was friendly and happy and we could take our dog into the bar area. Unfortunately she barked at the signers but it was all taken in good heart.

We've eaten in here a couple of times, Sunday lunch as well. We have always enjoyed our meals - hot, well seasoned and always complimented with a nice glass of wine. The sides are also worth a mention - especially the macaroni cheese. We look forward to eating here more often - Thursday's steak night is well worth a visit... More

Don't eat here enough seeing as it is just around the corner! We know that the staff are friendly & attentive as regular attendees at the bar, but forget that this place is also good for food. Always a good crowd in for Sunday lunch so booking is advisable. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.
