The food here really is excellent. The lamb shank is my favourite, the meat was so tender, with just enough mash and vegetables on the side. Great value for £15. I'm just not completely sold on the decor. Some of the seating is starting to look very tired and worn. The chairs are too big for the tables.

Cannot rate this pub highly enough, excellent choice of food, fab service at very reasonable prices and great relaxing atmosphere, very lucky to have such a great place so close to home to dine in or just pop in for a few drinks with friends!

A group of 15 of us visited for our annual Christmas party. We had a great time. The food was delicious, very well cooked and well presented. The tables were decorated beautifully and the place was very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Excellent value for money.

Called in for food on our way back from cheshire oaks. Very impressed with cleanliness, service and food. All home cooked. I had steak pie, lovely pastry, plenty tender steak in a tasty gravy with home made chips and a separate serving dish of fresh veg. Partner had hunters chicken which he too enjoyed but i think he was envious... More
