I visited this relatively newly built pub early on a Friday evening and wasn't sure whether or not I'd be able to get a meal there without a booking.
This is most definitely more of a restaurant than a 'boozer' and so is very family friendly. There was a wide age range of customers from small children to retirees and it was already very busy.
I was delighted to discover that I just needed to grab a table with a menu stand on it and then place my order at the bar. It was a little off-putting to have to pay up-front before the meal arrived, but I guess that any complaints just have to be dealt with promptly.
Food arrived quite quickly and was of good quality (and quantity!) and at a fair price. It seems that many customers opt for the carvery and are happy to queue up for that - the plates piled high with food suggested that this might be good value for money too, but I preferred to choose from the menu.
I enjoyed a cheeky bacon and cheeseburger - naughty but nice! I had been eyeing up the famous dessert menu but was too full to attempt one of their mega confections - the display was particularly eye-catching, so I may try one on another visit.
Don't go here if you're after a quiet venue, scenic views or fine dining, but for straightforward pub grub it's absolutely fine and the staff were friendly and helpful when asked.
