We visited here after a suggestion from the hotel we were staying in down the road and were very pleasantly surprised! the food was timely and suitable for the occasion although nothing spectacular with a good selection of wines, the service however was...

We drive past this pub every day and it has never grabbed us enough to try so it was with some reluctance we were recently persuaded to try and we were very pleasantly surprised. Food was tasty, hot and arrived on time, staff were helpful and attentive - we did have to wait to be seated in what was when... More

I don't usually post negative feedback but on this occasion, I hope this constructive criticism will encourage the owners and management to review their performance or lack of, and improve on quality and plating of food and of service, which was lacking. On the day we visited, the restaurant dining room had only 4 tables occupied, we were the largest... More

I went for a Christmas lunch with my work colleagues. We were very disappointed to find that we were all squeezed in on several tables where it was near impossible to be able to find room for our plates! We asked for an extra table to be put on the end. We pre-booked our food several months in advanced and... More

I don't usually post negative feedback (live and let live, etc.), but I really, and reluctantly, have to make an exception here. A few facts will suffice. I arrived at 12.55pm on a weekday for lunch on my own. The establishment was less than half-full. I ordered a drink and a simple meal, and paid up front. 40 minutes later,... More

We went to have Sunday lunch, arriving on time, the waiter clearly didn't have our booking in his diary. We were ushered into the bar while they sorted a table. We were then placed by the open fire, where we roasted for the next two hours. The wall radiator behind us also couldn't be switched off, as the control knob... More

Went to this pub for christmas lunch. Sadly the venue clearly couldn't cope with numbers in the restaurant on this day and the service was slow. Because of this the food I received cold and I didn't eat it. When the waitress came to collect the plate and asked if I'd finished, I said I couldn't eat it and it... More

As per other reports- disappointing ! Attention to detail , better service, and quality of food could have been better. Service was extremely slow, having to ask each time for our courses. Turkey dinner was cold, although colleagues did say rib eye was good, but £6 extra rather steep. pre ordered dessert as other review mentioned, was not available, and... More

Works outing Christmas Lunch, choosing from the set menu. Seemed a nice offering, pre-selected and emailed in advance. Service was slow; some were held up with dishes cooling until the rest arrived. Wine list starts at a modest £15 or so; our selection was drinkable, but took 20 minutes or so to appear - might have died of thirst. Food... More
