My daughter's mom in law, her partner and I went for drinks last night. The place was breathtaking..with the flowers and decor. The service was excellent as so friendly an atmosphere. Instead of an hour we stayed on for 3 hours.

Very disappointed with the afternoon tea ,we found a long hair in a sandwich, there was no offer of re making a fresh sandwich they just took £5 off the total bill , we won't be going again as their customer service was very unprofessional.

Great selection of beers and friendly pub atmosphere. Not an extensive food menu but everything on the menu is delicious. In particular roast dinner on a Sunday is excellent.
