Fantastic food. Lovely staff. Never had a bad meal. Portions are generous. Especially the deserts. Pub is dog friendly in the main bar ( not the restaurant). Do yourself a favour - try it !

Always consistently lovely however; the stuffing is now delicious, and the sweet potato, swede and parsnip dish a great addition. The meat was also particularly juicy! Would prefer cabbage to sweet corn, but hey! Well done Rory, Kerry all the team. See you next week!

Don't ever go to the trouble of booking a table here, as they just take all your info over the phone then guess what? They give your table to some one else and say you can eat in the bar. If I wanted to do...More

Disappointing here. Stopped for lunch after a dog walk. Baguette. Baguette was one of those pre-bake things from the supermarket, which wasn't cooked properly, a bit of meat stuffed in, and that was it. Pale looking and tasteless, won't be going here again. Had to...More
