We have eaten here a few times and have enjoyed the food. We enjoyed the Fish and Mushy Peas but request you change your chips, they were not good. A bit 'limp', greasy and a tad burnt.

As usual fantastic meal, friendly staff, more chips more gravy no problem. Great beers and wines. Not the cheapest but it's a foody pub. You will not get a better steak and ale pie anywhere in the uk

Have eaten here several times recently and have known the landlord and landlady for many years from the White House pub (now houses) Great chefs and good value pub grub. Quick service too.

We went here after hearing several people recommend it, on a Sunday evening. The menu choice is impressive and the drinks were fine however the food wasn't great. We had the battered camembert and the black pudding fritters to start, which were okay. The main meal was unacceptable. I had a roast dinner which compromised of small, burnt roast potatoes,...

The owners are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and they really do run the show as they cook all the food. The staff will always... More

Eaten here a few times, good service, excellent food, can't fault it, can recommend the belly pork and the home made chips are excellent although I would prefer new potatoes if only they were offered!
