We ate here with our parents and two children and there was something for everyone on the menu. They also have smaller portions on offer for little appetites. Paid approx £10 per head including drinks. Food was excellent, freshly cooked and loads of flavour! Highly recommend,

My brother in Law booked this venue for his parents surprise meal. Staff were helpful, especially the older bearded man who was helping keep the parents away from the part of the pub we were having the meal in,, while we were still waiting for other relative to arrive. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the meals all got served to... More

Not at all pleased. A surprise sixtieth birthday celebration had been organised by my brother in law for my sister with guests coming from different parts of the mainland. But as myself and others arrived just half an hour before the birthday girl was to appear we found that a booking error meant that a table for four and not... More

Been there many times.. Just thought Id do a quick review. Always very consistant. Can be very busy at times which can slow down the food etc.. but the quality is always good. A great selection of drinks and a strong menu, with specials, that offer something for everyone. Highly recommended.

We all arrived late Friday afternoon to celebrate a dear friends passing. Sam Shaw , the owner read the situation perfectly as he didn't know we would be there. Suddenly we were presented with a delightful buffet of nibbles . All off his own back to help ease the afternoon. It was an incredibly kind thing to do . Not... More

We popped in one evening with family, the welcome was friendly and we were shown to a dog friendly table, the pub was very busy but the food was really good and we didn't have to wait too long for it to arrive. Good menu, reasonably priced food. Well worth a visit.

Called into this venue on the off chance for lunch over the Easter Weekend. They were very busy but managed to find us a table. They were very accommodating, taking four dogs into a pub isn't ideal, nor is it a publicans dream but it didn't seem to be an issue whatsoever. The food was delicious, served up quickly and...
