Hadn't managed to get sorted and book somewhere so in a panic I decided last week to attempt to get a table for mothers day. Gave the reindeer a ring , we hadn't been for ages but always enjoyed it in the past. A nice man squeezed us in at 6pm. It had been a very busy day when we... More

Apart from the unwelcoming staff, the tired carpet, the literally crummy seats and shabby walls (why wouldn't you get a paint brush out to hide the chips, the shadow of pictures once hung and the mold on the walls, big enough in one place to be mistaken for a graphic), apart from all that, judging from the plate loads people...

Our first Sunday visit. We booked for 4pm and were seated in the conservatory (would have preferred a seat in the main building). The place was very busy, good atmosphere, lots of families. For my carvery roast I chose beef and ham. Disappointed the mash had run out! Very good, tasty carvery lunch with gravy to die for... Good value.... More

Having moved back into the area, I arranged to meet a couple of friends for lunch here. Service was very good, as was the beer (well kept 'Pedigree'). The carvery choice was more than I expected, & was delicious. HOWEVER - the pub now boasts a Delicatessen on the premises - extremely well presented by pleasant, helpful, staff. I went... More
