Food - awful. Staff - friendly. Don't bother eating here. Dogs are welcome and their hair is evident in most courses.

Had the mix grill special, all hot and cooked to perfection! Great service and a lovely traditional pub with a granite fireplace!

I have to be honest. Although the lady who took our orders, seated us etc. was very frindly and polite, and did her very best to rectify the situation, the meal we had here was very poor. It was disapointing as the menu sounded good. But finding someone else's hair in your starter is not great. Pate that came out as a sloppy dip is not good. Poorly cooked steak. Chips that were both burnt and soggy, and cold, looked like leftovers reheated in a micro-wave. Crab-cake served in sour-dough had little discernable crab, was tasteless, un seasoned, burnt, cold and served in a cheap white bread roll. Could not eat it. The kitchen had run out of some items on the menu- such as the sour dough which should have been with every burger, but did not bother to tell us. Rest of the service was odd, ..slow, and the kitchen staff were seemingly having some sort of muck about in the back, when they were not out at the bar!

Visited as a family of 6 with 2 dogs, were seated on a fold put table that would only stay level due to a huge barrel being placed in the centre which meant that people at opposite sides of the table couldn't see each other! The Sunday menu was suspiciously cheap and we found out why as we ate them. The roasts themselves consisted of 1 potato each and a very small helping of meats. The vegetarian option was unavailable so in its place were some Quorn sausages which had been nearly cremated. The accompanying veg was measly and overcooked. The desserts were pretty sure too, the crumble I had was almost dusty. The positives are that it is dog friendly and a nice traditional looking pub.

Arrived for Sunday lunch with family, the place looked homely and welcoming. Quickly seated, and looked after with meal request. Unfortunately the table had a large wine vat in the centre to stop it from collapsing, which was quite novel but not particularly social. The starters...halloumi chunks with leaves, apparently something was drizzled over them we suspect it was the rain from outside. Watery Iceland value prawns - some were still frozen with lashings of lettuce. The meat for the mains was good although the vegetables were boiled to buggery with some interesting take on swede. Roast potatoes only two each, where were the Yorkies ?
The pudding... Pieces de resistance? We each received a splat of crumble which appeared to be served on a saucer, Very interesting gritty texture. the Eton mess was more mess than Eton. We would certainly drink here again but the food requires the help of a miracle worker!!!
