Food here is ok, hubby had much better meals than I did. But we both did agree that it was not necessary for the waitress to "sort" the cutlery out by throwing it into its holder making so much noise whilst the resturant was full of diners.

Lovely lunch! Had the whole chicken, burger and steak and ale pie. All fantastic! However only downside was I found the onion rings too greasy. Lovely cosy atmosphere with roaring fires. Glad we got there for early lunch as it was hard to come by tables in the cosy pic areas when we were leaving. Drinks great selection. Will definitely... More

Could not fault the service very efficient and friendly but when the food is simple fare (pie and chips , ham and chips , fish and chips) for around a tenner I had expected more, chips dry but were home made, and the rest just average . Not bad but not good

The Listers simply does the best pulled pork sandwich on homemade bread (with homemade soup) and homemade cheese and onion pie ever - make sure you've done a walk first to work up an appetite! With a warming log fire and a lovely welcome for our beloved bulldog Betty, this was spot on after our February half term walk; can't... More

Wonderful country pub with rooms! Welcoming bar area, very cosy with open log fires, great real ales on the bar and the food is delicious! The staff are friendly and efficient, and the place is well staffed, especially at busy periods.

Food was served... More
