Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a very pleasant lunch with fiends today. Plenty of food to choose from and not pretentious. The food was good and very reasonably priced. The variety of drinks was good and the service friendly. Will use again.

We were travelling home from a day trip and made a snap decision to stop here for a late afternoon drink when we saw the kids play area from the road. We are not from the area and knew nothing about the pub but weren’t...disappointed. The staff were extremely friendly, and very helpful with food over an allergy within our group. We had some bar snacks, baguette, cheesy chips, onion rings etc… and all were great. The play area kept the kids (3 & 5) easily entertained for an hour without us having to hover over them. Also dog friendly! All in all, a really nice spontaneous stop at a random pub!More

We stopped here for lunch as we were passing and wanting something to eat. The pub looked very nice from the outside so we decided to give it a go. They say never judge a book by it's cover but in this case you most...definitely can. Upon arriving I was greeted by a very friendly landlady (I assume) and she was excellent throughout our visit as were the waiting staff. Very friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing for the prices charged, all home cooked and very generous portions, so much so that I could not finish all of mine. The menu is very varied catering for all tastes and diets. The rotating cake stand certainly got my attention and the cakes and desserts in there looked amazing. Sadly I was too full to be able to entertain dessert, but again I could see that all the desserts and cakes in there were homemade. If ever we are in the area again we will definitely come back here. Well worth a visit.More

I ordered the mixed grill and it arrived on a griddle well over cooked and appeared to have been reheated, the chips the same. Precooked and reheated. Disappointed due the the first visit here during the governments scheme to pay half the bill was a...rib eye steak cooked fresh and medium rare with home made massive onion rings and was really great. I’ll give them one more visit to see if they are any better. Watch this spaceMore

Our pool table has been put away for the foreseeable future due to covid restrictions. The balls would need to be sanitised before each person could play.
