Lovely spacious rooms, food is lovely, staff were very helpful and check in was easy. The rooms are basic but very clean. This is my second stay here and I would stay here again. The food in the function room isn't as good as the food in the pub.

Paid either £50/£55pp for NYE with Olly Murs and Bruno Mars tribute act, three course dinner, fireworks and bacon butties after midnight. Was pleasantly surprised actually. Food was okay, nothing special but I suppose what you expect from an event like this. We went as a four so had to share a table with eight others, the table was cramped...

Really good food, but let down by staff. Ordered our food within 5 minutes and it arrived. The girl waitress who served my dinner just put my plate down on the table, I had no 'enjoy your meal' and not even a smile, nothing. Watched her for most of the time and she didn't even smile once, miserable as sin!...

Went here for my parents birthdays. Food was excellent with steak cooked to perfection. Home made chips too which were nice. Service at the bar was good. However they serve no alcopops whatsoever which is unusual for a pub. The downside came when we had finished our food. We sat for 30 minutes once we had finished and no one...

The meat was nice, the gravy tasty and Yorkshires were real. However the Mash was like glue, the vegatables ridiculously over cooked mush and roasters scabby and deep fried. The beer tasted like water. Not a good carvery.
