It was ... okay? Food is okay ..It's lovely on a sunny day as they have a great outdoor seating area! However the staff let the place down! I didn't see one smile on anyone and it felt as though we were just in their way and it was obvious they didn't want to be there!

What a great, friendly, warm and pleasant pub. We used to come here a lot about 3 years ago but stopped as the numerous managers were unfriendly and the pub was cold and unwelcoming. Now there is a new landlady called Dionne who welcomes all customers like old friends. The log fire makes such a difference to the atmosphere and... More

I went with my son, his partner and my 2 grandchildren for a lunchtime meal. The meal was a typical pub meal. We did not feel it was value for money. We would not go again. Perhaps they were just very busy or short staffed, but it seemed a bit chaotic. They were very welcoming and there is a good... More
